On Saturday, we drove down 30A, taking in all the sites of the cool little beach towns along the way. There were so many cute and impressive homes in such bright colors. Our destination was Seaside for shopping, a farmer's market, and general wandering. It was a cute area with fun little shops to visit. The farmer's market was pretty much done by the time we got there, mainly due to the weather. There were art shops, plenty of places to eat, home stores, and a few jewelry places. Mom and I both got some jewelry at Shimmering Seas.
While there were food trucks to try, we all opted for Bud and Ally's Taco Bar for lunch while we were in Seaside. I must admit that on Saturday, I was starting to experience my mid trip crabbies and I was not my normal cheerful self. The bartender at Bud and Ally's must have known this because my strawberry margarita came with a whole extra cup of goodness. The food at Bud and Ally's was tasty. We all split some chips, queso, and salsa, which had a good flavor. For our meals, we did tacos, burritos, and taco salad. The tacos were small, but tasty, with great fresh ingredients. After Bud and Ally's, we spent a little more time in Seaside, finishing our trip with some tasty gelato.
We had talked about possibly taking a dolphin cruise on Saturday, but it just didn't seem to be in the cards for that day. I took a nice nap when we got back to the condo, hoping to get rid of my crabby mood. For dinner, we tried Marco's pizza, which is a national chain, that I can now recommend. Everyone got to eat as much or as little as they wanted and we could be as casual as we wanted. After dinner, we played tenzies, a fun dice game. Somehow, tenzies turned into a drinking game and then some of us progressed to actual drinking games, which ended with way too much red wine being consumed. On the positive side, I was no longer crabby.
