The Post Office is Closed

I grabbed this photo while visiting my dentist the other day. I thought it was a perfect example of what happens to old technology. This is one of the old mail chutes that people would drop 'letters' in. I know, how quaint. Taking crushed up and dried trees, writing on them and then loading them into trucks and shipping them around the planet. I like how the old mail conduit now has networking cable run in it. Seems ironic.

Weekend Getaway to Carmel

It was Jodie's birthday weekend so I surprised her and rented her favorite car, the new Mini Cooper Convertible, and we headed down to a B and B in Carmel. A nice drive down Highway 1, dinner in Capitola and lots of stops along the way to enjoy the scenery. Some notes; the white sand beach (even though imported) was amazing, Carmel is full of old people and it closes too early, 17 Mile Drive in a convertible is a must for every person and those weird 'sea dragons' at the Monterey Aquarium freak me out. We had some great food but the one that really stands out is the breakfast at Carmel Belle's (see photo). Rightious! Katy's Place and Casanova were good as well but we are really spoiled in SF.
