What would you do if you're bogged down by the stresses of daily routine and vacation is nowhere in sight? If you ask us, we go on a day trip for an instant mini vacation. There's a destination that we adore, a place where we instantly feel energized, where the sun and the sea embraced us and soothe our frayed nerves. Monterrey area, specifically the small town of Pacific Grove has become a favorite quick getaway for the husband and me, either for a day trip or an overnighter. On this late September day outing, we sat on the bench, ate a hearty sandwich from Compagno's, watched people and shorebirds, breathed in salty sea breeze and soaked up as much Vitamin D as we could.
And before we tackled the task of driving 2.5 hours back to reality, we stopped at Peter B's for some pub grub.
We both had a beer flight.
I had the fish and chips.
Fish tacos for him.
And we had two apps to share.
This is my kind of mini vacation. What is yours?
