Monterey Artichoke Festival, Pea Soup Andersons, The Victoria Inn

.

Today is the first day of the “post-trip”, the adventures following the Monterey event. Joe and Rosemary Priebe had driven up to join us, arriving while we were celebrating Curt and Darlena’s big win. Bill and Cynthia Stedfield were heading back on their own route. Steve and Marsue Page were going in a similar direction as the rest of us, for a family lunch in Twain Harte, and then going south again. So the Glenores, Res, Priebes, Stevens and Webers met Sunday morning to start the rest of the trip. Each couple had taken on the task of planning at least one day and arranging stops for meals and hotels, as well as museum visits or other events, both cultural and car oriented. Sunday was the Webers’ day. The group started with a visit to the 59th Annual Artichoke Festival at the Monterey Fairgrounds, continued with a visit from AAA and a new battery and then proceeded a little behind schedule with a cross country trek to Gustine and lunch at Pea Soup Anderson’s, where everyone had pea soup (surprise, surprise!) We then moved on lesser roads to Oakdale and a quick break at the McDonald’s, where the Pages passed us going in the other direction. The GPS then took us on some more lesser roads and some even lesser roads which we chose not to follow (we don’t do gravel!) before landing us in the picturesque town of Murphys, CA. It was a first visit for everyone and we hope will not be the last. The Victoria Inn is quaint and full of character but in 100 degree weather, lacking the most modern and necessary convenience, efficient air conditioning. However, our dinner in the Cellar at the attached V Restaurant proved both cool and delicious.
