Heaven Can be Found in the Most Unlikely Corners

I had asked for some directions on how to head back to the Cabrillo. It was getting to mid-afternoon and the day was getting hot. I figured it might be time to start heading back.

The cook at the Barbary had provided very vague directions about following the road round and getting on to Mission.
Surprisingly, his vague directions made sense once I got back into the car. The road round was a one-way street with a wide circular switchback and it kept going until it hit Mission. As always, I took the left fork…..which was heading back to the Silicon Valley direction.

“Heaven can be found in the most unlikely corners” is yet another quote from the Mitch Albom book. It seemed appropriate to quote it now.

Because…..as I was driving along Mission, probably about 5 minutes down the road…..look what I saw out of the corner of my eye!

Donnelly Chocolate store sat at a corner of a side alley. It was amazing that I spotted it at all! But then again…..with a claim of being One of Ten Best…..maybe not.

Naturally I stopped.

I walked out with three different varieties of these bars.

I can honestly say – Heaven can truly be found in the most unlikely corners!
The chocolate here is tending more towards the taste of a slightly bitter dark chocolate. It is not overly sweet and the maple toffee bar I bought was just outstanding. I also bought two nut varieties….and whilst I do prefer my chocolate sweeter, the chocolate from this shop was pretty darn good.

There was a man behind the counter who turned out to be super chatty once he realised I was from Australia. It had been a life’s dream for him to go deep sea fishing in the Coral Sea. I didn’t have the heart to tell him that I lived the entire continent’s length away from the Coral Sea.
