... we stop for lunch at the Olde Worlde town of Mariposa-saloon bars and wild west frontage - an old gold rush town - very old by American standards. We are given a warm welcome at the Gold Coin Bar and sit out on the verandah in the stifling heat saved only by the fans and the misting spray to cool us down. We clean up a very fine lunch and experience pork sliders for the first time. Possibly too fine a lunch as we realise when we saddle up for the long journey to ...

After lunch we jumped in the van again and were headed towards big sur. we stopped off on the way at a beach with a massive seal colony with hundreds of seals all piled up together, pretty much if they weren't on top of each other or huddled as close as possible.

Then we tittered ourselves back to our basement clutching bars of chocolate and with thoughts of a bit of telly in bed before we tried to sleep till our holidays arrived. There was a television but ...
... and cuppa - almost real food, really hit the spot. Then a wander round the shoppy shops, decided that we wouldn't splurge in the handmade cowboy boot and jacket shop as the boots that took my eye were $3500 and the jacket that took Stephens was $800, absolutely gorgeous but just a wee bit out of our range! Did however find some lovely earrings that after some thought and a bit more of a wander round decided ...
