Our Bay are weekend continued the glorious weather. We had a lazy morning with good coffee, and then took a drive to Pescadero for lunch at Duartes Tavern. They are famous for their seafood, artichoke or cream of green chili soup, and home-baked pies.
No visit to Duartes would be complete without a taste of the Olallieberry pie. It is the perfect berry, actually a cross between a youngberry and a loganberry, it tastes something like a cross between raspberries and blackberries. Are you completely confused now? If you are ever in Oregon, Washington, or northern California, and you find some, GET THEM, or order some jam on-line!
14 miles north along the coast on Highway 1, we stopped at the beautiful Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay. This is pumpkin country for sure, and the front entrance was decked out in quite an assortment.
This one is my favorite!
We had an assortment of beverages, and I had a lovely pot of French press coffee.
The view from the bar window was pretty spectacular too.
We left to attend a sapecial birthday celebration for my good friend and mentor, Louise. It was a wonderful party with great food, entertainment, and old friends.
All good things must end, and way too soon, it was time to get back to the airport. But as a perfect ending to our fun weekend, we were able to see this stunning sunset.
