after the dreaded final trip to the dentist I got a birthday gift...............a stomach bug. Shoot man three days flat on my butt. And then a couple a days of rather shaky moments of what to eat and don't go too far from the loo
OK that's over now on to the important stuff. First off it's St Patrick's Day my first thought was corned beef and cabbage............eeewwww not so much after the past week of stomach rumblings. Beef stew!! Perfect for the outside temps of 90 - 95 degrees here in the Southwest. But hey it's St Patrick's Day.
OK we'll get that out of the way and move on to the real projects at hand.
We will be leaving this area that we have become so fond of and going to California. Precisely Buellton which is on the Santa Ynez River in the Santa Ynez Valley,
and in 2004 was one of the fastest-growing towns in central Santa
Barbara County. It is a common stop for travelers on U.S. Highway 101,
being the first town north of Santa Barbara after the scenic and undeveloped stretch of about 25 miles (40 km) through the Gaviota coast. Did I mention this is yummy wine country. Oh my the many vineyards and the best area for growing strawberries you have ever tasted.
I digress it's seems it always goes to food. But there are some pretty tasty eateries in that area. And some of the best folks ever.
Needless to say.....................
