day four vegancation.

my breakfast consisted of cold leftover pizza and a starbucks latte… i then headed north to sebastopol with my friend marcella. she took me to a local farm friendly / organic restaurant that had a few vegan items on the menu. peter lowell’s is adorable, the staff friendly and the food was pretty delicious!

holy crap. first of all i didn’t think they would have a vegan dessert because most “veggie friendly” restaurants never do. they normally have one or two veggie dishes and leave us vegans out when it comes to dessert. not peter lowell’s. this rhubarb cobbler was AMAZING. when i lived in new york i was always making rhubarb something because my grandmother had it growing in the backyard. i’ve never tasted anything like this. i think it also had strawberries and apple, but i’m not sure. it was so good. it was topped with coconut based ice cream. yum. thanks for catering to vegans!!! marcella and i left totally full and happy!

the rest of the day was spent hiking and exploring various farms around sebastopol. super cute farm areas. i got to hang with some chickens & roosters, a llama, some alpaca, a few horses… and we picked strawberries. YUM. they were super sweet.

we soon realized we were also covered in ticks. YIKES. so the whole way back to oakland we were pulling ticks off each other. lesson learned…. hiking requires bug spray to keep ticks away. i guess it’s tick season because we saw billboards on the way back advising to take showers after hiking. awesome. all in all it was an AWESOME day.

i was too tired to leave the apartment for dinner so i ate the remainder of my cold leftover pizza. *yawn* can’t wait to see what vegan adventures tomorrow will bring.
