On Wednesday Jen, Shanice, Thomas and I headed to Monterey for a micro vacation! It didn’t exactly go as we had hoped — we got jipped on SO MANY THINGS. From food to souvenirs, and even the places we planned to visit! We went on the 17 Mile drive to go to Pebble Beach, but we passed it on the way (we couldn’t find the entrance part to the beach). We were all tired and hungry, so we said “Eff it” and checked into the hotel, then went to California Pizza Kitchen for dinner. Dinner was good (we don’t have a CPK in Stockton anymore, and we miss their tiramisu!), we were just a bit bummed about the whole Pebble Beach thing.
Afterwards we did some exploring. Shanice and I both loooove Salt Water Taffy and I saw an add for a candy store on Cannery Row that had over 70 flavors!!! And it was in the same shopping center the big antique mall I wanted to go to was in. However, all the stores were already closed. 😦
Oh, you know how they weigh candy to determine how much it is? Well, my original amount came out as $15. I was like, “HELL NO!” I mean, that is a ridiculous amount, right? So I went back and tried to dump out as much as I could, but I was getting irritated by running to all the different flavors and once again said, “Eff it” and just bought it. My new total came out as $13. x____x
Maybe I should’ve tried to control my taffy urges. Anywho…
At least I got to take some fun pictures. I’ll share photos from the 17 Miles drive shortly! 🙂

😀 Whenever I read or see salt water taffy I think of this Friends scene http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UQ1zgUJbz8o 😉 I don’t think we even have this over here, I’d love to try it!
Whoa, we have something that Europeans don’t have?! Salt Water Taffy is one of my most favorite things in the world! I should send you some along with See’s Candy (it’s a candy chain that’s only sold in California, lots of truffles and such). I’ll take a look to see how much it would cost to send stuff to Germany. 😀
You should! I’d send you something in return! ;D What about Lindt chocolate or some other German candy goodness? 😉
Hell yes, Lindt! I’m excited for this candy exchange!
We shall talk about this on tumblr! ;D
