Spooner’s Cove at Montana de Oro State Park, Los Osos

Today was all about eating and getting some exercise in between meals.  First, Sean cooked a breakfast of home fries with my favorite over-medium eggs.  Then my friend Roberta came over and picked me up.  We had plans to go hiking up the Valencia Peak Trail at Montaña de Oro State Park in Los Osos.  Altogether, we hiked a little over four miles, but the view along the way was beautiful.

And finally we’re at the top! Off in the distance there is Morro Bay. You can hardly see Morro Rock because of the fog.

By the time Roberta dropped me back off at the house, Sean had been waiting for almost two and a half hours.  It was well past lunchtime, and he was grumpy from hunger.

“Why didn’t you eat?” I asked, pulling off my hiking shoes and trying not to get trail dust everywhere.

“Because I didn’t know when you were coming back.  I thought you’d be gone for only just an hour.  And then when it got to be two hours, I didn’t want to start eating because I figured you’d be coming home soon and the first thing you’d want to do would be go out to eat.”

“Sorry,” I said.  “Come on, let’s go out to eat.  I’ll pay.”

“You better,” Sean said.  Grumpily.

I drove us to Mama’s Meatball in San Luis Obispo.  We ordered vegetarian sandwiches made with good homemade bread and fire-roasted vegetables including eggplant and peppers, with fresh mozzarella and basil.

I think the food made up for Sean’s wait.
