Cheri and I visited a nice Japanese Tea Garden in San Mateo Friday. In the evening we picked up a friend of ours from New Hampshire at SF airport and we stayed overnight in San Mateo.
Saturday morning we all had breakfast with a friend in Redwood City before driving to Cambria. We stopped at San Antonio de Padua mission and toured Hearst Castle later in the evening.
Sunday we went to Cayucos, Morro Bay then back to Cambria with wine tasting in some of the wineries, watched the elephant seal on the beach near San Simeon and dinner at the Cambria Pine Lodge where we stayed.
Monday we visited the Steinbeck Museum in Salinas which has a very fine exhibit of John Steinbeck’s works. A short biographical video of Steinbeck was very informative.
Before we returned back to Napa we loitered a bit in Union Street, drove down Lombard Street and Chinatown in San Francisco and had dinner at the Thirsty Bears.
A compact 4 days.
