Even though our group consisted mostly of women with a need for chocolate that is second to none, we didn't break out all the dessert fixin's until the 2nd day. (Why would we need to when we had the most amazing Tiramisu from this rustic little trattoria the night before? I don't even like Tiramisu, but this was heavenly.) Saturday evening, we made variations of this concoction:
Take one hunk of decadent brownie and place in a strawberry shortcake cup. Add a generous amount of whipped cream and top off with vodka-infused cherry. Strawberries optional. Have a glass of milk standing by.
This is Anna, watching us try to finish our crazy desserts.
At this point, I could neither eat, nor drink, any more and decided to take advantage of the light on our last night at the inn. A couple of my favorites:
On our last day we spent a little bit of time in town shopping and ordering the Tri-Tip sandwich from Firestone Grill. It is soooooo good!
While waiting in line at the restaurant, I saw the cutest puppy ever! Lucy is a 4 1/2 month old Boston Terrier who is the most good-natured little pup I have ever met. I am trying to talk Mike into letting me get a sibling for Sasha! :)
Back at the B&B, we sadly packed up all of our things and spent another hour or so commemorating the trip in a number of ways...
... defacing traffic cones...
... painting rocks...
... or taking a bath.
But when "Captain" Mike said it was time to go, I insisted on a few group shots...
This was seriously, the best road trip ever. It was so great to spend it with so many of my awesome friends in a location that I absolutely adore. Thank you to everyone who made this so awesome!
....and a special thank you to Mike... who not only helped me plan for it, but also did ALL the driving and helped (in a big way) to pay for it. Without you this wouldn't have been possible! I love you!
