To truly share the experience with you, I made a home video for you.
I'm very proud. This is my first effort at movie making!
BTW, stop adjusting your volume. There's no sound. It's my first effort.
What you just saw there was an attempt by our tandem Jazzercise! team to get started in all of the mud. It's difficult sometimes.
So besides the fun time at the Little 5 oh oh, the crew and I threw together a spontaneous meal that consisted of the following:
Squid stuffed with chorizo, queso fresco, and roasted red peppers
Calamari* soaked in lemon juice and red pepper flakes, lightly grilled
Purple and white steamed cauliflower
Margaritas with freshly squeezed lemons
Goat leg, grilled and stuffed with garlic and rosemary
Pretty fantastic, huh? Now you see why I take so many trips north.
The next day, we burned off that fabulous dinner, and our hangovers, with a beautiful ride through Montana de Oro. The sun came out, rainbows appeared**, and the sparkling ocean was visible from the trail.
It was a beautiful weekend.
* Sometimes it's squid. Somtimes we call it Calamari. It depends on how Italian we're feeling. But the soaked version definitely seemed more Italian.
** Sadly, there were no unicorns frolicking about.
