We hit the road at 8:10 a.m. and headed down the Bouquet Canyon with a little rain but little traffic and drove down highway 126 with the fields full of ripening strawberries. We stopped for a cup of coffee and sweet roll for breakfast and then went along the coast to Santa Barbara. We went to a couple of stores with no luck but here came the rain. We made it to the car and headed up to the San Marcos pass that received 10 inches of rain last night. There was quite a few rock slides that has been picked up. What a gorgeous ride. Libby and I hiked up to a overlook. If we didn’t know better, it was so green that it could have been Ireland.
We arrived for lunch at Solvang and had Denmark sausages and abelskibers. We then headed up Hiway 101 to our ocean front hotel in Pismo Beach. We checked in early, unpacked and took an hours’ nap. Great room with a ocean view. We then headed off to San Luis Obispo and did some walking and I got a Cal Poly San Luis Obispo light water proof jacket. More rain to come.
We just watched the sun set and it was beautiful. A really nice first day for us.
