On Saturday, September 29, 2018, we met at the Starbucks in Morgan Hill. Around 10:00 am twelve cars and twenty-one people were off on a wonderful adventure driving the backroads of South Bay.
We drove along the east foothills of Morgan Hill and Gilroy down to Hollister. While driving through Gilroy we enjoyed the usual delicious smells of rows and rows of garlic. We saw wonderful farms full of galloping goats and other livestock.
All stopped at the Paicines General Store on Airline Hwy 25 for a break and stocked up on snacks and sodas.
We drove South on Highway 25 and back through downtown Hollister to our lunch destination, Dunneville Café & Market.
Several were treated to delicious sandwiches full of tri-tip beef. Others decided to have breakfast, chicken sandwiches, and other delightful dishes.
There was a Bocce ball court on the premises, however, we all were anxious to get back on the road for more adventure.
We took the Roop Loop through the foothills past Coyote Lake and the old Gilroy Hot Springs. We crossed west through San Martin and those that continued the drive returned to San Jose and were treated to “custom make your own milkshakes” at My Milkshake.
Thanks to Kurt for planning and leading another wonderful drive. The weather was just right, and we couldn’t ask for a more pleasant day and drive in our Miatas.
