His Highness Likes Farms

We're back from approximately five hours of milling about in crowds. There was a moment, while we were seated at the bar of the Western Saloon in Point Reyes Station, when we realized Charles and Camilla would be visiting that very saloon, presumably to meet a fat little, carrot-eating pug named Fred! Oh, we had the catbird seat, we thought.
Until a special agent rousted us out (and she was packing heat, so we obeyed).
From behind barricades out on the street, however, I was able to get a fairly good picture of the Prince of Wales as he emerged. (I learned he had two sips of a local ale inside. No word on what the Duchess of Cornwall ordered.)
I'm tired, so I'll fill in all the details tomorrow.
Well, I'll just add that everyone said he was charming. Imagine that. Prince charming.

Good shot cookiecrumb. I saw it on T.V. last night. Looked like the circus was in town.

Ooh, nice photo of him. What a cool experience.

Update: He had a pint of Boont , she had, oh, hell, some other local brew. Maybe Lagunitas IPA. Both on tap; her glass had a mug-like handle, but I don't think she took a sip.
People I spoke with said she was prettier in person.

If I was a royal, I think I would drink Boont too. That stuff is dang tasty! But we went through Anderson Valley a couple of weeks back and noted that the brew-pub was gone. No great loss -- the food was wretched there, but where the heck are they making the beer now. Gee, I bet I could find out on the internets!

I would like to take this opportunity to direct all other commenters to johng's site. Hi John. I guess if you get to drink Boont, you *are* royalty. (I have a sorta semi-supertaster with microbrews; too bitter, but...) I'm happy to know about your wine ruminations, and will check in often. In fact, I'm going to blogroll you.
:^)

Cookie, (can I call you that?) you are far too kind. Thanks! I will do the same, and I suspect you'll like the rest of my blogroll when I get round to that.

Luv, you can even call me "Cook." Or "Crumb."
Can't wait to see your roll.
