A busy weekend

This weekend Nigel and Adam went off on a back-country camping trip. They hiked 2 miles or so into Castle Rock State Park . More details on Adam's blog shortly.

Rather than join in with this I chose to stay home with Finlay. We did not, however, lounge around at home all weekend. Together with Alison and Henry we did the Monte Sereno Quail Run . This route took us all around our neighbourhood and Alison and I spend the entire time discussing the benefits of the various real estate on the route.

We finished up with a pancake breakfast at the school - Finlay certainly got his money's worth of food.

Of course the fire brigade and police came so we we got to climb into the vehicles and get a really good show-round of the fire engine, and an account of an exciting moment during the recent Summit Fire.

The final excitement for us came at lunch. Finlay and I treated ourselves to lunch at the California Cafe. While we were waiting for our food we were watching the kitchen which is open to the restaurant. The young hip executive chef came out and offered Finlay a tour of the back kitchen which was fascinating. Finlay was most impressed by a giant halibut in one of the two walk-in fridges.
The rest of our day was restful...I installed the new PC and Finlay watched a movie...he missed his brother.
