Big Sur slacking at Post Ranch Inn|
The Big Sur marathon was this morning, but it started a few miles north of the Post Ranch Inn
so we missed all the action. It's a beautiful course -- north bound from Big Sur on the highway,
which the closed for 5.5 hours. The first place finisher was Jeff Gardina, 24,
from Santa Cruz, CA, who finished in 2:25:48. An incredible time given how hilly the course is!
Michelle Thomas, 26, from San Luis Obispo, CA, finished in 3:02:11 (38th overall).
Sunday was much like Saturday -- another day of recovery from out 6 days of biking.
We got up, sauntered over to breakfast with our books, grabbed the daily newspapers,
and then settled down by the pool to read.
We enjoyed a lunch with a bottle of
1999 Zind Humbrecht Clos Windsbuhl Gewurztraminer
(gorgeous!) and continued to laze by the pool.
Dinner at Sierra Mar was accompanied by a bottle of
2002 Lail Vineyards J. Daniel Cuvee Napa Valley.
