"Too Much Fun" is just enough...as we welcome Rich & Nancy, and George & Carol to the Coast!

Rich & Nancy, brother and sis in law, and George & Carol, original owners of the California Kitchen in Cuenca, all arrived here a few days ago for fun on the Coast.

Even though, it's our "winter" here in Ecuador, we had a couple of unsurpassed beautiful days.

It was George's first visit to the Coast, and Saturday was just beautiful.  He and Rich walked on the beach, looked for interesting shells, and waded in the warm waves...

In the evening, we all trooped down to the Casa Blanca in Montanita...it was great for people watching, and the crowds turned out in droves...all worshiping the wonderful weather, and celebrating school vacation in Cuenca and Quito...so "people watching" was great, as usual...

Rich and Nancy picked up the tab, so thanks mucho guys!


Sunday morning we were surprised by Carol and George preparing the full bore "California Kitchen famous breakfast"  featuring the best bisquits and gravy anywhere, tons of bacon, knock your socks off omelottes and George's famous fried potatoes.  And...those wonderful breakfasts kept on coming every morning!!!  What a treat!  Thanks for the memories George and Carol...

Roxanne prepared Sunday dinner of sauteed chicken breasts baked with bacon and cheese, with generous servings of Rice Pilaf...actually a favorite in our own restaurant of many years ago...Every plate came back spotless...

We spent many hours watching the waves from the various decks and patios, and even saw whales in the distance a few times.

All the visitors took leisurely shell hunting walks...

We received much-needed rain Sunday night, and Monday still remained cloudy, but it was still warm enough for shorts and tees only.

However, the weather gave us an excuse to eat inside by the the fire on Monday night, as we had mountain-sized burgers with lots of trimmings, plus yummy potato salad, especially made by Rox...

The sunsets were perfect!

 


 As if we weren't having enough fun, we also got to celebrate Rich's birthday...some during the day shots...


 

Gooooood!!!!

 

 

Birthday Dinner was a whole Filet Mignon roll, expertly cut up by George, with Bob at the Bar-B-Que.  We had lots of baked potatoes, and a delicious Zuccinni Mushroom dish made by Carol...and if that wasn't enough, we had Tres Leches ice cream slathered all over the cake you see in the preceeding photo...


Fabian came down to pick up the happy group, and they are now all safely back in Cuenca...

Too Much Fun Is Just Enough!!!!
