Breaking in our new Weber Genesis ep-330s

A couple of days ago we got a new Weber BBQ as a surprise 5th wedding anniversary gift and after assembly we needed to break it in with a couple of different dishes.

We started out with having a small backyard bbq with friends and grilling some delicious rare tuna steaks, which turned out wonderful, due to the 700F degree sear burner and followed it up with some tasty crabs, fresh from the California coast.

Camping at Salt Point

Ever since buying Rocky the trailer, we wanted to go camping to some spots at the coast and take pictures there. Sadly half the time so far, the camera didn't work or I forgot it at home or I forgot the tripod or any other million things went wrong.

Anyway, now we finally managed to get away for a couple of days and head direction Salt Point using the route 1 North.

Which is a beautiful drive, but rather tedious with the jeep and trailer, coming in around 9000lbs and 32 Feet length ( roughly 10 meters) in comparison to the Porsche at less than 3000lbs, which we took to Point Arena (which is north of Salt Point) a while back.

beautiful curvy roads, steep cliffs and working breaks are a wonderful combination

And we went part of the trip off road, due to a navigational error, called trusting your GPS. Not something I would want todo under any circumstances ever... Needless to say, I was happy we didn't bend or break an axle and driving 4 miles, in about one hour time was a new record.

Since it was a bit colder up there, this pups finally got a chance to test their new traveling beds, it's amazing what you need to bring these days for a successful camping trip, to ensure everybody is comfortable.

could I have a blanket please?

usual slightly depressing north coast weather up here
really regretting that I sold my macro lens about right now again
