Vacation Time

Sunday, Sept 4th

Guess where we are.  Yep, back in Solvang, our home base for super biking in Santa Ynez Valley.   This time I drove, and you know what that means ... yep, I put The Boyfriend in the trunk and had me a swell time.  Ha ha ha. 

Labor Day weekend brought tourists and renting a super deluxe bike vehicle seemed the thing to do.  Cool.

We arrived early afternoon, got settled, and then did our favorite 14 mile ride -- the Amgen Tour of California TT.  This time of year, I saw a lot of prickly pear cactus.  Boy, the winds were gusty, coming at us sideways and head on.  It was tough biking.  In the evening, we went to Cecco, an Italian restaurant we discovered the last time we were in Solvang.  I chatted with the young and pretty staff, talking about our men and how we let them pretend they're in charge.  We rolled our eyes a lot and said things like, "I hear ya sister."  The Boyfriend was oblivious.  Ha ha ha.  We had a delicious pizza that was made in front of us by a charming guy who wanted to please us.  And served with a good wine.  A lovely way to start a much needed vacation, and as The Boyfriend remarked, "A Night of Zin."
