day with my dad

I went out with my Dad a few weekends ago to go to the Cowgirl Creamery in Point Reyes. So we made it there only to find out that it was the one weekend they were closed to do a massive clean out of the entire market place. 

So we ended up wandering around their Main St, the surrounding towns and many many cheese shops.

Sorry for the lack of writing in this post, gotta pick up my parents from the airport. A recipe next post!

I made a cheese plate from all the cheeses I got, and the peppered cheese in the middle is a goat cheese log I made.

What an amazing day! Sounds like one my dad and I would have (if we lived on the west coast) -- we actually sound quite similar to you two in all these respects. He and I now live hundreds of miles apart. I'm envious of you! What bakery is that scone from?

Cheers,

I haven't been to Pt. Reyes in years. My grandparents lived in Inverness, so I knew it from the 1950s. Beautiful area. There is a fabulous B&B in Pt. Reyes,where we stayed about 15 years ago.
