Tuesday Bret and I took a quick trip down the central California Coast to San Luis Obispo. It's a favorite trip for us and even though we only had one night to stay there it was worth it. The weather was perfect all along the way, which is unusual for this time of year.
You pass by a lot of agricultural land traveling down 101. It's very beautiful, and you see summer crops in all stages from fresh plantings to harvest.
First stop was Paso Robles for breakfast at The Cowgirl Café, which was delicious. It's a favorite spot for us, we've been several times, and even Elizabeth and I have stopped in Paso for lunch and antiques. New to the neighborhood since I'd been there was Two Susans Antiques. Really cute place, super nice Susan there to chit chat with us.
Another shop that is adorable is The Cottage. It love the vignettes they have set up there, but they have strict no photo policy.
Another new stop for me is Birch Fabrics. What a cute location, and of course the shop is filled with great fabric.
After our shopping we headed over to the coast through Cambria and down Hiway 1 to San Luis Obispo. It was windy and cool, we stopped along the beach front in Cayucos to take a look at Morro Rock. When I was a kid we'd camp in Morro Bay at the State Park, we had a little canned ham style trailer. My father's Aunt Milly lived in San Luis Obispo so we'd visit her while we were there. I always have a good feeling when I see the rock.
As usual we stayed at the Apple Farm Inn. I love everything about the place, I'm sure long time readers know that already! This year I only grabbed a couple of photos of the pots of flowers. You can see in those older posts there's usually a lot more blooming, but it looked like the grounds keeper was busy pruning and cleaning up while we were there. It didn't spoil my trip one bit.
It was a great time. I just missed Annelies by a couple of days. Wouldn't that have been fun? Now it's back to business around here. Hope you all have a great weekend.. any plans?
