Carmel GTG: Saturday

I was up bright and early on Saturday morning. I had a nice walk, leaving Brad asleep in our hotel room. Two double lattes later, we set off for breakfast with our old friends, Lynn and Gary, who live in Carmel. Also visiting this weekend was Bonnie, another neighbor of ours from my days in San Carlos. Lynn and Gary showed us their recently remodeled house which turned out to be an amazing and seamless addition. We enjoyed a big breakfast and some catching up time.

Then we did a little shopping before meeting the gang for lunch.

We met shortly before 2:00 at La Bicyclette. We were still full from breakfast, but enjoyed a glass of wine and a big bowl of caffe latte. We were happy to have Rebecca and Sean join in on the fun.

We met again at 6:00 for drinks and the bagpiper at Spanish Bay, a Carmel GTG tradition. Lynn, Gary and Bonnie joined us for a drink. As we transitioned from wine to food and more wine, we settled in to the lovely dining room at Peppoli for a great dinner.

Brad and I shared a fritto misto with calamari, lemons and fabulous fried fennel. I had lasagna with filet mignon and house-made Calabrese sausage (OMG!), and Brad had orecchiette with sausage, broccoli rabe, and burrata!
