Our Visit To The TomatoFest!

A Weekend Visit To Carmel And The Quail Lodge!

The Real Plan Was Golf.... After All???

It just so happened that the Quail Lodge has a golf course (image that???).  So we took advantage of the situation and played 18 holes on Saturday morning before the "Hot Tomato Dance" scheduled that evening!  We were joined by Rich and Cecelia of San Francisco!

It All Starts At Edgar's   One Hour To Go!
We had a T-Time of 11:16 so we arrived an hour early to warm up!

We played with Rich and Cecelia from San Francisco.  Rich runs a company that teaches people to sail and Cecelia runs an Electrical Contracting Company specializing the design for small businesses.  We had a fun afternoon!
