because of my love for food we went on a food venture to try a barbecue place we heard of in pacifica, ca. gorilla bbq was on diner’s drive-in’s and dive’s and if you watch that show you know it can make your mouth water sometimes. i have to say the food lived up to it’s hype. whenever i smell food now, and it doesn’t matter what type i’m smelling, (chinese, mexican, whatever) i start to crave their ribs! it’s very strange how that happens. on the plus side, pacifica also has the most beautiful trails (mori point). that order probably shouldn’t happen living in healthy conscious cali, food and then oh yeah bonus, nice trails, but that’s how i’m wired.
the last time we visited we ate our ribs in the car while nola was sleeping and then went on our hike. this time i envisioned having a picturesque picnic with the family so we took the food on our hike. i can easily say my vision of how i wanted things to go lasted maybe a minute!?! it started out amazing, the weather was warm and beautiful, nola was playing so nice eating a toy and we were ready to dig in. however, like typical san francisco weather it switched in minutes and it was cold and windy. nola’s hair was standing up straight and she was giving us that look, “if you don’t do something about this very soon i am about to loose it.” so sadly we had to tag team eating like the norm, sitting on napkins (so afraid the napkins were going to fly away into the ocean and then people would be chasing us down the hill for littering), being ok with getting bbq sauce on everything and holding nola girl. eh, it wasn’t ideal and cj called it stressful, but i’m glad we did it or at least it was for a good story??
regardless we love gorilla bbq and, oh yeah, we also like the hike, haha 🙂
