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.

... those who haven't seen it, it is the NFL on steroids. This premium channel allows you to see every score from every game.

We drank more beer than rode bicycles, so that didn't help the balance the exercise scale.

We woke up to rather an overcast morning but weather improved during the day with temperatures hovering around the 65 F mark depending on the cloud cover. After a decent breakfast at the hotel we headed to the 17 Mile Drive which hugs the shoreline and passes by the most beautiful and renowned golf courses in the US. First stop was Pebble Beach. It was amazing to be walking where the golf greats of the world have walked. Unfortunately we were not able to even think ...
... 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.
... dusty. The traffic is heavy and the towns close together and congested. With the mountains snowy, the valley dusty, and the parks still closed by the US Government shut-down, we needed a new focus. Fortunately, in the US, there is always a new focus!
Thanks to our usual lucky lack of planning, we found ourselves at a crossroads with the road known as California 49. This narrow, winding track runs through the foot hills of the ...
... 9am when we scrambled out of bed and hit the beach again for a morning walk and London’s first dip in the Pacific – the water was icy cold but not a squawk out of her, water really does seem to be in her genes!
We were on the road again by midday – hearts sinking as we left the Pacific views but with the next stop being Yosemite we know we have a picture book of amazing scenery ahead of us which softens the blow of ...
