Port Costa and Crockett

The Burlington Hotel Cafe, Port Costa, CA

With some time to spare before the wedding, we drove our rental car up to Port Costa to walk around for a little while and have some lunch.  It was a treat.  We looked out across the Carquinez strait and then meandered through the tiny town.

We were greeted by chickens driving a pickup truck, some sweet old cars, and this old theater sign:

We first walked into the Burlington Hotel cafe to and got a plate of bacon (Thanks Rob!) and some coffee.  The cafe, like the exterior of the hotel is bright and inviting.

But it was also a treat to walk around the hotel.  Port Costa was a former port for wheat-shipping and the hotel was built in 1883, soon after the Port Costa was founded.

and then elected to grab lunch at Crockett rather than eat at the Warehouse Cafe.  Another time.

We ended up at the Valona Deli and I took this photo in the bathroom:Baseball at the Valona Deli, Crockett, CA
