Gilmores escape to California's Central Coast for a visit with old friends and some R&R
This weekend we traveled to California's Central Coast for a little getaway. The trip was prompted by Dorina's high school friend Anjali, who was flying out from Boston for a wedding in San Luis Obispo. We haven't seen Anjali for a few years and we thought this would be a great excuse to escape for the weekend. We stayed at Ericlee's grandparents' place - a wonderful house shared by the family and an inexpensive hotel for us. We arrived Friday night and got settled. Anjali and her friend, Jen, drove up from L.A. Saturday morning and we enjoyed a 30th birthday brunch. Dorina made french toast casserole and fruit salad. Then we all piled in the hybrid and headed down the road to the beach. We walked on the beach and watched Meilani with her hip-shaking run on the sand. The weather was especially gorgeous - no wind, a brilliant, blue sky and soft, warm sand to tickle our toes. The time quickly flew by and then we returned to the house for Anjali and Jen to get ready for the wedding. We really enjoyed the time with them. The rest of Saturday and Sunday we relaxed. We went for a long run, watched some football and Food Network, and lunched with Ericlee's college friends, Ryan and Laurene and their sweet son, Kedrick.
