Located in the rolling hills outside the picturesque town of Arroyo Grande lies this gem. The term B&B does not do this place justice, I think of it as more of a small private home with comfortable self contained guest quarters arranged around a beautifully landscaped grounds.
The hosts are friendly but carefully maintain the professional distance needed to let visitors find their feet, relax and wander around the grounds. They offered sage advice about distances to local attractions and certainly helped us achieve the goals of visiting certain places without knocking ourselves senseless with a long drive that we had initially thought of doing.
The breakfasts were too delicious and plentiful, Tony and Pat know how to lavish you with the most comfortable bed and softest sheets you'll ever find.
It is hard to say goodbye, so do stay for longer than we did.
If I had to find fault at all, it is that hard-core coffee nuts from Australia would appreciate espresso coffee over filter, but that is basically a cultural difference.

... our next stop. The story is here that this unfinished mansion was donated to the state who now run various tours through it. It is full of amazing and different styles and collected pieces built up over a number of years. Many of the items require maintenance and protection from the huge numbers of tourists that come through here – you MUST stay on the carpet or get yelled at by the security guards positioned throughout the castle.
... thick fog we didn't bother stopping too many times to see the "sights". Much of those just included the coast line we were driving along and the waves crashing along the cliff face below. The ocean was full of kelp, which did kind of ruin the "view". Also past a stretch of coast where the sea lions like to beach themselves and chill out for the day. Michael thought they were all dead, and I actually smelt them before I saw them (while we were still riding).

Today we got up in the Safeway supermarket carpark, gave a delightful morning greeting to other camper van peeps and then got a Jamba Juice to start the day. Before we knew it we were on the way and driving along the picturesque Monterey coastline. Monterey known as the first city of California, is also famous for sardine canneries. We had a look around and took in the aqua blue sea with enormous rocks standing tall amongst the waves. After many stops to ...
... Obispo but it started getting dark at about 6 pm, so we are staying here in a little motel called the Arroyo Grande Motel.
We asked to see the room and inspected the bed and shower, lovely white sheets and towels and a tv. Watching tele for the first time in ages!
The weather today has been lovely, but this evening when we went out for a meal it was absolutely freezing!
Really odd to arrive in LA before we left ...
