Coming Home

We were up at the crack of 8:00 am!  We had a lot of fun last night.  Diane fixed a nice breakfast and we packed up and departed at 9:00 am sharp.  We zoomed out of town at 9:00 am, heading towards home after a super visit with the Porter Clan and Mr. Bennett.

We headed down 101 until we went to SR152, which took us to Interstate 5.  State Route 152 (SR 152) is a state highway that runs from east to west near the middle of the U.S. state of California from State Route 1 in Watsonville to State Route 99 southeast of Merced.

The first few miles are tree-lined.

Trees line the highway for the first twenty miles!

It is a very well-maintained two and four-lane road.

During the summer months, it is pretty dry!

The hills are dotted with those silly wind turbines.

Its western portion (which is also known as Pacheco Pass Road and Pacheco Pass Highway) provides access to and from Interstate 5 toward Southern California for motorists in or near Gilroy and San Jose.

You can tell it has been raining.

Gilroy is known for its garlic crop and the annual Gilroy Garlic Festival, featuring various foods containing garlic.  These led to the city being nicknamed the Garlic Capital of the World.

What do you call someone who has been raised by garlic? Garlic bred.

What does garlic do when it gets hot? It takes its cloves off.

We had a good time, arriving home at 3:27 pm.  Robin was still there, so we visited for a few minutes.  I jumped in the shower, changed, and headed to Campus Jax to see The Westside Sisters, a modern takeoff on the Andrews Sisters.

It was a lively performance.

The six of us had a great dinner and enjoyed the performance!

We had the best booth in the house.

Mary and I stopped by Aces on the way home to visit the locals.  We had a glass of wine before going home to rescue Scout.
