I know I'm lucky to live here. Had pizza and beer out on the deck this evening under the stars and didn't need a sweater.

So ... where is the "SPAM eating capitol of the world" anyway?? Enquiring minds want to know!

Thank you for the warm welcome, all - I'm thoroughly enjoying myself already. I can see that I have lots of browsing to do ... all in good time!

New Zealand, how lovely! I visited in 1991 and had such a wonderful time. (Ate a lot of lamb which, fortunately, is one of my favorite things!) I would love to visit again and stay longer; one week isn't nearly enough time.

Hawaii. Have you ever eaten at Pacific's Edge Restaurant in Carmel?

Welcome, Franca! Love your area sooooooo much! Last time I was up there about 3 years ago. I love the whole area- Cambria, Big Sur, and 17 mile drive. What a gorgeous part of the state!

Hi Franca. I am glad you enjoyed your visit to New Zealand - a lot has changed since 1991 - especially our interest in food. You will have to come again! I was in San Francisco last year - but did not get to Monterey Bay and went north to Nappa instead - visited a few winerys and restaurants (including a famous French one...) came home very fat!

No, I've never eaten there - I think there are lots of Carmel restaurants I've missed. Usually if we're in Carmel we go to a place called the Rio Grill. What's Pacific's Edge like? Is it right on Ocean?
