Road Trip-4

I’m a big fan of the brief getaway. Big vacations are fun, but they are too few and far between. Even though Todd and I enjoy our work, it can start to creep into off hours and weekend hours, until we begin to feel a little ground down. There is nothing like getting out of our routine and just getting away to help us clear our minds and really refresh. Even a day trip can do it. A long weekend is better. We are so lucky that California offers so much to discover. We can drive for hours in any direction but west and find something new and interesting.

A few weekends ago we drove south to visit Hilary in Santa Barbara. Along the way we made stops in Cambria and Morro Bay. Hilary introduced us to beautiful landscapes in the rolling hills west of Buellton, planted with grapevines as far as the eye can see. The wine tasting was nice too. :-)

It was lovely to have no real agenda. To just explore. And, as often happens, we stumbled upon some very cool stuff — like this “meetup” of classic car enthusiasts in the parking lot outside Frankie and Lola’s Restaurant in Morro Bay. Todd was thrilled to get up close to a four-speed dual quad positraction 409. She was real fine.

And this one was for my Dad, a life-long Packard man:

We came home relaxed and happy and singing Beach Boys songs. Do you like little road trips? Where do you like to go to get away?


    • Thanks for stopping by my blog! It was fun to stumble upon so many beautiful cars and the people who love them. Classic cars are a little bit of history and art combined.
