For me though, I suppose it was a new experience. For loyal readers of my blog, you'll know that I like trail blazing. I cut my own path independently. It was a responsibility to plan a trip for others and make sure that the people on my team enjoyed it.
On day one, we went to the Danish town of Solvang and ate a hearty breakfast of fresh Danish pancakes, wine tasting in Los Olivos, gyming and spa-ing at the four star hotel, and ate dinner at an Italian restaurant on State Street (to celebrate the kid's birthday).
On day two, I made the guys wake up and do a 3 mile beach run. It was my favorite part of the trip. The sea mist rolled in. The rhythmic running forced my mind slipped into a zen state. I loved hearing the ocean roar while running. I even saw a Mermaid's Purse, which is a shark egg. It has to be lucky because it's rare to see. When I ran back to find it though, I found out the Pacific Ocean grabbed it back. We then went on a hike. Picture above.
We ended the trip eating fish and chips on the pier. Below is me having a picture with a retired couple, whose dream is to have a mobile cafe. I respect those who follow their dreams; so, I had to take a picture with them. I had a cigar when I saw them. I realized later, I probably should have handed it to one of the boxers while the picture was taken. But I had to take this pic. Until next time.
