Hi there! How is your week going? We're in a bit of a cool down today, expecting only 99 after a day when the temps were at least 108. Holy Pam Kitty on a spit! I felt like I was roasting! I know that a lot of you had it worse, I'm talking to you Arizona.. but wow, we felt it yesterday.
Earlier this week Bret and I went down the central coast to San Luis Obispo to celebrate our 30th Anniversary! We had a great time hanging out, nothing fancy, just being away from the daily business of regular life you know? Not going to lie there was some great weather there too, which made it even better. We spent some time driving with the top down along the coast enjoying that feeling of being almost chilly!
One of the crazy things we did on the spur of the moment was grab lunch at the Madonna Inn. Its so pretty on the outside, and pretty crazy on the inside!!! This is the only section that's pink, the rest just has pink trim in the front buildings.
The exterior of the remaining buildings is so wonderful.. Honestly, I'd love a house with those kinds of arches/pillars out front with shutters, wide eaves. It's so California Ranch to me. And while the days of shake roofs are over for the most part, they're still my favorite. It was super fun. If you want to kill some time be sure and head to the website and check out the rooms. And for some fun read about it here on Wikipedia.
We stayed at the Apple Farm Inn which is our favorite. Much tamer for sure. It's lovely, the grounds beautifully maintained and the atmosphere tranquil.
It was especially charming in the evening. It was a relaxing time and we enjoyed it. But of course it's always nice to be back home too.
Hope the week is going well for you! xop
