|Flowers blooming on the bluffs.|
I Love Me Day is an occasional holiday when I treat myself to whatever it is I am in the mood for -- usually some time in nature. Big Ag would probably argue that for me, every day is I Love Me Day, but that's not really true. While I love the work I do around the property, and I love my job at the winery, it's not quite the same thing as spending a day doing exactly what I want.
Today's agenda called for a hike along the coastal bluffs a.k.a. the western edge of the North American continent. The flowers are just starting to bloom and the sun was warm and welcoming. I decided to have lunch at the Smokehouse in Cayucos, which makes the BEST smoked abalone tacos ever.

After that, another hike a few miles north of where I started and then a quick trip to Soto's and Linn's in Cambria for some dinner ingredients, followed by a wonderful meal at home of lobster, shrimp, onions and cucumber salad with lime and cilantro. And olallieberry pie for dessert.
