6/5/2016 MONTEREY TO SUTTER CREEK

.

After breakfast and goodbyes to Bob & Rose and Bill & Cynthia we mounted up and headed out to Sacramento and points further. We also left behind the cool breezes and fogs of Monterey in exchange for temps in the upper 90s and into the 100s, as we drove inland. Jim and Diane led us through Castrovillle, Morgan Hill, San Jose – up the 1, east on the 156, up the 101, over the 680 and onto the 80 east to Sacramento. The temps kept on climbing as we drove until we arrived at Old Town Sacramento with the cars showing 101-102. We found parking in a variety of lots, structures and on the street and met at Fat City for lunch. Curt and Darlena were meeting her brother, John, and had him also come to the same place. After lunch, the Sommars, Boers, and Hackworths took a train ride and checked out the Railroad Museum; the Priebes, Glenores and Webers did a little sightseeing and then headed separately to the Sutter Creek Inn in Sutter Creek….Gold Country. Curt and Darlena spent the afternoon with her family and then also headed to the Inn.

The Sutter Creek Inn is a B & B with 18 very different rooms. The group arrived somewhere between 3 and 5 pm, in dribs and drabs. The Webers located the evening’s dinner location and wandered up and down Main Street. The Glenores and Priebes took it easy. The Boers and Sommars arrrived around 5 and the Hackworths simply met us at Teresa’s Place in Jackson in time for dinner. Teresa’s Place is an atmospheric old building which has been in business since 1921 and is owned by the current Teresa, the fifth generation from Tuscany. We were fortunate enough to have her take personal care of us. This amounted to tons of soup and salad served family style, followed by abundant servings of a variety of pastas. Some even topped off the meal with spumoni or cannoli. It speaks volumes about the reputation of the restaurant that we were only one of 5 large parties at the restaurant on a Sunday night.

We then drove quickly back to Sutter Creek to get Al and Vickie checked in and to head to sleep before a Hackworth-planned and, therefore, very busy day tomorrow with the leg from Sutter Creek to Tenaya Lodge in Fish Camp in Yosemite.
