So hey peeps, did you have a good weekend? We had a 3 day weekend around here. Bret took Friday off and we had a good time doing stuff. I love going places during the week, way less crowded although there is the commute traffic factor.
Friday anyway, we went to Garafalo's
. It's a fun shop in Campbell that Tammy Gilley
posted about here
Its a great shop in a darling neighborhood and wouldn't you know it.. it's closing. So if you're going, they're having a sale!
They told me about a nice magazine about the central coast, go here to read all about it, you can download the first issue.
After checking out Historic Downtown Campbell we headed over to Panera's for lunch. YUM. I love salad and this one was so fresh and crisp, sweet-tangy tart.
After all that we went to the movies to see Indiana Jones. I thought it was just ok but I could be way jaded by the fact that the movie theater WAS HOT. Sorry, but that's just WRONG.
I don't even remember what all we did on Saturday, how bad is that? Got dog food, ate at Chevy's (which is boring without tomatoes)
Sunday we had breakfast out at Emil Villa's for Father's Day. Then we took a ride up Mt. Diablo. Turns out Bret has never been, so we went! Saw this fellow along the way.
A view of the valley I grew up in ... I can see my neighborhood from here, but that's about all I can identify. Here's a panoramic shot from the visitors center. The far left is around Benecia and Crocket, far right is towards Pittsburg and Antioch. I was amazed how far you could see. It brought back a lot of fun childhood memories for me, growing up at the foot of Mt. Diablo. It was always our landmark, and coming home from vacation it was a race to be "first one to see Mt. Diablo."
After a nice BBQ we went out for a ride to watch the sunset. It was a really nice weekend. Hope you all had a great weekend too! xo
