Happy Birthday to our niece Caitlin!
From the big city to the beach…
We had a lazy morning and left Palo Alto at 11:00 on our way to Avila Beach near San Luis Obispo. It was a much easier driving day. We needed it. The last 2 driving days were long and challenging. We travelled south on highway 101. The scenery, as always in California, was beautiful. Lots of green mountains and a clear blue sky. We also saw miles and miles of lettuce farms.
One thing we’ve noticed is that with all the roads we have travelled, the most poorly maintained are in California. Financial problems? Don’t know.
We arrived in Avila Beach at 2:30. Our room wasn’t ready yet, so we decided it was time for some body maintenance. Nail salon time!
Then back to the hotel. Its right on the beach and the weather today was really nice. It was about 75 and sunny.
So much better than cold, snow and fog…
Our mileage is 7,646.
