Like many heroes before them, and like many heroes who will follow them, the Man and the Boy and the Girl went on a Quest. A Quest for Donuts. They left the safety and beauty of their Paradise called San Elijo State Park, and ventured into the uncertain and forbidding world of Cardiff-by-the-Sea, in search of those sweet sugary confections.
As happens in many Quests, the pilgrims met many obstacles along the way.
The Quest remains incomplete, of course, until the successful return of our intrepid and adventuresome trio to the safety of their San Elijian Paradise.
The fearless threesome headed back.
They traversed woods . . .
. . . . they crossed railroad tracks . . .
. . . and still, they persevered.
The Girl carried the sacred goods. Of course she did: the Boy is no dope.
And, finally . . . Success! Victory! Triumph!
The donuts? They didn’t stand a chance.
