We spent last night at a lovely bed and breakfast in Cervantes, Western Australia, about two hours north of Perth.
We had breakfast this morning with the other two couples who were staying at the B&B — two New Zealanders, a Canadian and an Aussie. Our hostess was a Brit who had relocated to this remote corner of the world back in the 1980s.
Of course, we all had to tell where we were from. When we said San Luis Obispo, California, everyone in the room said, “I’ve been there.”
“I would have been willing to bet a million dollars,” I said, “that you couldn’t get seven random people together in Cervantes, Western Australia and find out that the one thing they have in common is that they’d all been to San Luis Obispo.”
They all agreed that it was a very strange coincidence.
