I’m back from Monterey and Pebble Beach, and the most spectacular bunch of cars I’ve ever, ever seen. I’ll post pics and stuff when I know what the paper wants first, but what a spectacular show. It’s called Concours d’Elegance, and I kept getting it wrong, but now I know. We also spent a day at Laguna Seca watching vintage racing. So so so much fun.
Got to trundle along the coast the first day – we had a driver – so we went down to Big Sur, and through Carmel. And Carmel Valley. And Carmel By the Sea. Yes, there are that many Carmels. I looked for Clint Eastwood every single place we went. I did not see him. More likely, he saw me first.
The Concours is a fancypants event, like Ascot or Wimbledon, but with cars instead of horses or tennis. The best part was watching what people wore. Tons of money there, but somehow, well, I dunno. I did see a few hats, but the best thing was a poodle with a hat on. Yup.
Anyway. My new site is not nearly as posh as the Concours, but it is more laid back. Hope you’ll hang out…I leave again Monday, but I’m sure Roz will hold court, as usual.
