However, Ernest returned from this trip at 10:30 a.m. and he wasn't quite ready for lunch. He suggested we drive for a while and go to The Spot in Carpinteria. This is where his dad got burgers as a little kid and it's still there.
So the burger hit the spot for sure. And there were onion rings.
Go ahead, grab a ring. He'll share.
Yes, he looks a little tired there. 24 hours of traveling will do that. He still had enough energy to take a bike ride when he got home, although he admitted that the giant burger was perhaps not the best thing to have eaten so soon before a ride. Shh, we won't tell his coach.
