We left Solvang and went to Buellton to at least have a breakfast at the Andersen's Pea Soup restaurant. I had a scrumptious breakfast of eggs, bacon, toast, coffee, and a bowl of split pea soup. It was very good and started my day well. We needed that since we were traveling all day going about 185 miles to San Juan Capistrano to visit an old friend of mine. What made it rather tiring was that we had to pass through the Valley(s) of the Shadow of Death called Los Angeles to get there. Of course I missed a turn and ended up taking an unexpected and unfortunate tour of an area called Santa Fe, which is an industrial area of LA. But with prayers and repeated usage of the direction finder, we finally made it and holed up in a hotel in Capistrano. I called Iraj from there and our lives immediately turned wonderful. Iraj had us come to his home the next day.
I want some of that!
