We left Esalen @ 11 am and headed north up CA 1 through Big Sur, Carmel-by-the-Sea, and Monterey.. I called Richard in hopes he would be in Half Moon Bay for the weekend, but alas, we were a week too late! Drat! We pressed on past Santa Cruz into new territory for both of us. Stopped in at the Bonny Doon tasting (https://www.bonnydoonvineyard.com/visit-us/) room and then had a bite to eat at the Whale City Bakery (http://whalecitybakery.com/menu/) in Davenport.
Kept driving north all afternoon and made our way into San Francisco by dinner time. A little tired and not very hungry, we ended up in Ghirardelli Square (http://www.ghirardellisq.com/) at the Bluxome Winery (http://www.bluxomewinery.com/) for a sip and a snack.
