Moto Tour Cali 2009 - Day 8
We are at Rachel and Derrick’s place in Big
It’s a really neat house, kind of what I call hippy/natural/beach-style for lack of better terms. There is lots of wood paneling and exposed beam, or just painted board walls. Also lots of tile. I don’t think there’s any sheetrock anywhere. Somewhat hodge-podge construction, probably multiple additions and/or remodels. Also a huge yard and gardens and fruit tree groves! There are limes, lemons, oranges, grapefruit, tangerines, AVOCADO, etc. trees. And of course, all kinds of veggies in the gardens. There is a pretty large pool (not yet filled). Sur.
Perhaps best of all, the whole property is about 1,000 feet above the highway and the ocean, with a view of each. This morning I took a bag down to the grove and picked oranges that we squeezed into fresh juice that we had with breakfast at a large table in the all-wood dining room. We hung out at the beach for a while after that. Now we’re relaxing at the house. Tonight plans include a BBQ and a full-moon hike to the top of the mountain. Not bad.
