Seeing the sign for Gilroy – we decided to pull off.
According to the blurbs – Gilroy is the Garlic Capital of the World – or at least California which means the US.
It is an interesting town – with some incredibly nice people. I found cookbooks on Garlic, garlic keepers and “Vampire Free since 1870” T-Shirts.
No yarn store – but
Anyway – we met Pat who, after retiring from the local police force is active both in running model trains, organizing the local community, and raising money for charity. Oh, btw – he also is a DJ for the Golden Oldies.
we also had a nice time talking about Alaska and fishing (he and his son made the run a couple of years ago. I had no clue that Halibut are actually that big).
Then it was off to Carmel.
