Yeah it is. Spectacularly nice, in fact.
the road system here is so much better than NY's.
Can't believe Manton & pB aren't here to share this w/ us!
Anybody watch the Democratic mayoral debate?
conne pmed me to say that deblasio leads the polls. I should be dismayed, and I suppose I am, but mostly I don't care.
a town of 60,000 doesn't need the infrastructure of NYC
i mean the whole freeway system in the bay area on down, you dope.
and in any event, the point is that the surfaces are smoother, the signs clearer, the merging areas and ramps longer, etc. The whole system is just superior in every way.
it's because they're not here that we were given good weather. It's what this world has come to.
aside from poor lane designation at critical parts, the 1 from SFO to Half Moon Bay was quite nice. Fancy new tunnel as well. Single lanes and a 4 cyclinder and 3 gear (3!) hatchback meant I was destined to be tailgated by a douche bag in a Mustang, but so it goes.
who was it that was just complaining about the roads in northern Cal? Something about the earthquakes damaging them and repair was slow.
there are some bad spots on the 101 in the south bay.
the 1 south from santa cruz also has a stupid construction project. It's insanely crowded right now, my parents say this is the worst they've ever seen it.
17 is in the best shape it's ever been in. 85 and 280 are sparkling. 880 has sucked for several years but supposedly all the projects will be done next year.
Mike, you should go to Half Moon Bay. In the middle of the main strip, there's an awesome wine store/wine bar. I loaded up on tastes of like 10 different wines, including a Finger Lakes riesling, and it cost me like $15. Good atmosphere.
I also had an excellent fish sandwich nearby, but that cost me more than $15.
we could do that, we have to stop for lunch somewhere, and I promised my daughter I would show her Mavericks, though there will be no waves.
they do have some food at the wine bar, nothing fancy or substantial, but I really liked the place. wines were available in a bunch of different pour sizes, I just did the smallest of a bunch of different wines. good way to explore new regions or varietals.
mind you, since it's located in northern California, they close at 6 PM half the time and 8 PM the other half.
the fish sandwich, which i devoured with the force of a thousand suns, was from some shack across from the Oceano hotel. Near the bay, there's a spot where some people attempted to surf on the occasional wave.
