|There was a preview of a new racing game, not sure which,|
and Nick tried to win a Hot Lap around the track. He didn't,
but it was worth a try!
The races started at 1pm, much to my chagrin. I thought the qualifying races we had been watching were the actual races! Little did I know that I had a whole afternoon to go. It wasn't as bad as I thought though. We hiked up to the Corkscrew area and I took a little nap. With the power of ear plugs, the day went by pretty quickly. I'd go with Nick again, but only as long as the tickets are reasonably priced. I don't think I appreciate this kind of thing as much as some others might.
Nick had made us reservations at our favorite seafood house in Monterey, The Monterey Fish House, so we headed back to the Marriott in Downtown Monterey to clean up. I showered first. By the time Nick got out of the shower I was in sweats with a glass of champagne and my feet up on pillows. We are such an old couple. We had a great night with an awesome dinner and some pretty hearty laughs. He makes me laugh so much. We were chattering away when we got off the elevator in the hotel and we went to the wrong room! He would put the key in and I would try the handle. We did that about three times before we realized we were on the second floor but needed to be on the sixth. We got out of there quickly in case someone came out of their room. Giggling the whole way of course.
The second day of the Porche reunion was just about the same as the first but this time we went to breakfast at The Breakfast Club in Seaside. Holy smokes, I had the best omelette I've ever tasted. The waitress recommended the Chile Verde omelette. It was packed full of green salsa with barbacoa pork. Just thinking about it makes my mouth water. I scarfed the whole thing down before I even touched the biscuits with gravy and hash browns that came with it. We've definitely found our new breakfast place for when we're in Monterey. Oh man, it was good. If I was on the Food Network show, The Best Thing I Ever Ate, this omelette would be a top pick.
