We headed out to the ranch as it started to sprinkle outside. When we arrived we were asked if we still wanted to ride because of the weather and we bundled up and said of course. My Love was given a horse name Nikita and mine was named Night Cap. We both had riding experience so the ride guide didn't spend very much time going over how-to and
We were seated at a window side table with a view of the harbor out to the ocean. We ordered crab entrees and clam chowder appetizers. The clam chowder was "award winning" and really deserved it. It was fantastic! The crab was served cold with mayonnaise which we were not used to at all. It was still good crab and surprisingly the mayo with lemon juice was a fantastic condiment. But we both decided at the end of the meal that we still prefer crab hot. Throughout the meal we watched the boats come and go and the seals swimming in the harbor, it was great.
The owner's husband happen to get home that night from a boating trip, it was New Years Eve, and he was a crabber. Lucky for us they were having a crab boil for New Years Eve and when My Love went over to ask for more towels they gave us two whole crabs right out of the pot. We were ecstatic and dug right in to the hot crabs, especially since you couldn't find hot crabs anywhere in town. We ate them both for dinner. When it got closer to midnight we snuggled in bed turned on the TV to watch the ball drop and cracked a bottle of Martinelli's (our new years tradition). We brought in the New Year together so relaxed and care free it was perfect.
well and it was great with a different flavor. The rest of the food was just okay and for the price not good enough. We went home and built a fire, as we had every night, and then went to bed and woke around 9 to be out by 10. On the way home we had one more adventure as we drove over the Golden Gate Bridge. Neither of us had ever been to San Francisco so this was exciting for the both of us. We waved goodbye to the bridge and made the long drive home already dreaming of our next trip.
