Last night, strolling around Santa Barbara we came across a vegan restaurant and I thought Kistin was going to cry she was so happy. So, today we walked over for breakfast and found out it is only open weekends for breakfast. I thought she was going to cry. So, we postponed our departure until 11 so she could get a vegan "pastrami" sandwich. Jim and I fell off the meat wagon and got vegan sandwich's also.
Some of their menu items:
- "Tuna" Melt
- "BBQ" Sandwich
- "Pastrami" Sandwich
- "KFC" vegan
(eat your heart out Dave)
Then we were off to wine country. The ride was great. Warm temp's, clear blue skies. After Kristin grabbed Jim by the collar and told him the race was over and to slow down, we had time to look at the great vistas. We pulled into Fess Parker, better known as Davie Crockett, winery. Jim and I bought a half bottle of wine to wash down our vegan sandwich's. I think we were both amazed at how great they tasted as a change from all the "road" food we have had over the last 10 days.
We worked our way back over to the coast were it got windy and cool. Jim and Kristin split off to go visit her sister. They are two great people and I am really glad I got to spend time on the road with them.
My destination was Cambria, but by the time I got to Morro Bay it was cold, windy and happy hour so I turned in. I went to the Estero Inn. This is were Scoot, Bob and me finsihed the race for one from St. Pete to California in 2010.(http://lostboater.blogspot.com/) It is a boutique hotel right on the water with just a few rooms. Brittany, who I must say was stunningly beautiful, was working the front desk. She and I went round and round on the price of the room, but finally she said that was as low as she could go but she would through in a bottle of wine. I pulled out the credit card.
My first visit to a vegan kitchen
Deb, never mind the airstream. A vespa and one of these and you are good to go.

Sadly, Brittany is camera shy.
