So-Cal Pacific Coast
A few years ago Jay and I went to San Diego for a conference. An old grad school classmate of his, picked us up one morning and took us just north of San Diego, out to see the coast for breakfast in a small town. I don't remember the name of town, breakfast was good, but not a standout. For decades I didn't eat in the morning, but as I have grown older I have developed a love of going out for breakfast. I love a good eggs Benedict or well made omelet. A good breakfast out can easily be the best meal of the day.
One of the things that stands out, was the number of exotic cars. Ferrari, Rolls Royce, and Lamborghini - all together in one small town - as we cruised around in a Prius. We stopped at a point and walked out onto the rocks. There were sea anemonies in the rocks, creatures I had only ever seen in aquariums before. There were seals on the beach. It was a short morning, just 2-3 hours with an old friend, that created very fond memories, Thank you Teresa.
What short encounter created fond memories for you? (And yes, I know for some of you this could bring back memories of a different kind of encounter.)
