After a late night, Sharon and I dragged ourselves out of bed before 6 am. The plan for the morning was to attend Mass at the Holy Cross Catholic Church at the Santa Cruz Mission. We went to 7 am Mass on the first Sunday of Lent.
We grabbed some coffee and a small bite to eat at Starbucks on the way back to the hotel. Messaging with Morgan, we made arrangements to meet about 9:30 am at the Trailside Cafe in the Carmel Valley. We quickly packed up the car and took off.
Taking Llaureles Grade into the Carmel Valley, we rolled up to the cafe at 9:45 am. We met Morgan and Lee for breakfast. Sharon and I had Huevos Rancheros, while Morgan had a Santa Barbara Benedict. Sharon was not impressed with the meal...
We had a very nice time visiting with Morgan and getting a chance to see Lee! I am smitten; overwhelmed with love.
After breakfast, we started towards home. Sharon wants to try and hike at least once a month. On the way home, we stopped at Pacheco State Park. Literally right off of Highway 152 on the way home, we stopped and ended up hiking a lot further than I expected. A map and a picture from the hike are here.
With a quick stop in Natomas to pick up her Cabi shipment, we rolled up to the house in Carmichael about 5:15 pm. We covered a lot of ground and accomplished a lot in 29 hours!
