Hey hey hey blogger land! Guess what time it is!
It’s hard to believe it’s already Wednesday! No time to waste though, let’s get this party started!
Emilia had some things she had to do yesterday to prep for school next week, so I decided to go on a little adventure…
I took a bus…a train…and ANOTHER bus…and I went to…
Before heading out for the day, I made sure to have something for breakfast that would “stick to my ribs” as my mom used to say.
Yep, I totally brought my gummies with me to Cali…can’t go a day without my candy!
Luckily Emilia reminded me to grab a few snacks before running out the door to catch the bus, because with all the traveling, there was no time for lunch…
A pear on the train, a carrot-raisin muffin on the city bus, and another pear on the site- seeing bus!
Oh, and did I mention those are homegrown pears? Oh yes…be jealous!
Not only was this my first time using public transit, but also my very first experience dining alone.
I feel like I’ve hit some sort of milestone…now I just have to go see a movie by myself and my experiment in self-sufficiency will be complete! 😉
Then, upon my tour guide’s advice, I ordered a cup of their award winning
Dungeoness Crab & Corn Chowder
But the star of the show was definitely my entree…
It’s a good thing I WAS by myself, because I probably would’ve embarrassed any dining companion with my near When Harry Met Sally reaction to this dish!
After my meal, I enjoyed another glass of wine (hey, it was happy hour!) and sat back for a good people watching session. Then, after a quick stop in a shop to purchase a few classic souvenirs, I headed back to the bus station and made my way back to Santa Cruz.
It may have been a long day of traveling (about 8 hours total), but definitely worth the experience! In an upcoming post, I’ll definitely share more pics with you guys, but until then, “travel” on over to Peas & Crayons and check out all the drool-worthy link-ups!
Have you ever dined solo?
Are you a fan of seafood? If so, what’s your favorite surf dish?
