The Recipe for Romance – Motorcycle Style

Inn at the Lost Coast SignWhen some girls talk of romance they refer to things like candle lit dinners, wine and roses. Not, me. I found the ultimate romantic moment on our California roadtrip.

This recipe serves 2 motorcyclists:

  • Start with 2 motorcycles
  • Add  twisty roads
  • Sprinkle with curves to taste
  • Bake under the sun at 75 degrees for hours

The Inn at the Lost CoastWhen you’re done cookin’ on the twisty roads, add an empty Inn overlooking the ocean. Serve with a garnish of pizza on your room’s balcony and VOILA! Instant romance.

The Inn at the Lost Coast sits on a bluff overlooking the ocean 20 miles west of route 1 in Shelter Cove, California.

When we pulled up to the Inn the late afternoon sun was warm and the breeze off of the ocean was blowing steadily. We walked up the stairs to our room on the third floor, put on our shorts, ordered a pizza and just sat around enjoying the view until the sun dipped below the horizon.

We slept with the balcony door open, listening to the waves crashing against the rocks below all night.

When we got up in the morning, part of me didn’t want to leave. I wished we could just stay put for one more day. Alas, the road was calling us to continue heading south.

    All my girlfriend wanted for her birthday was a stage 2 kit for her Ninja. Thank God for women like the two of you! Maybe Venus and Mars aren’t so far apart after all?

    What more could you ask for. Struck a romantic cord with me too. If only you had posted a photograph of the pizza. Some things are better left to the theater of the mind.

    LOL @Ronman 🙂

    Wow – I can still hear the water crashing against the bluffs in those photos. Though you can never “recapture” a moment like that over and over, I sure would love to try a few hundred more times to see if it’s possible.

    Romantically simple and loves motorcycles, what more could a guy want 😉
