Asilomar is a well kept secret.............we at first couldnt make out what it was as there seems to be some groups of folk on courses there...........but its is super special place to stay if you want to try something slightly diferent and refreshing reasonable price wise . the breakfast is in a huge lodge and well so large you have everyhting on offer.............the surrounds are architecturally intersesting and it worth spending an hour on the free audia tour and self guide yourself around the buidlings and see the place come alive all those years ago when it was first built. We are on a world tour and this was just 4 days at Asilomar but it will remains special in my memory as the best place we stayed along the californian coast , no not for luxury, but good value and much better value than a normal motel and for the same price.............im enlgish and i cant say how sweet this place is, with sweet natured people, and away from the hsutle and bustle of the real world.

... At 11.25, passing through Half Moon Bay we saw groups of surfers. Hazy sun over the land and blue sky out to sea, with a wind stirring up a surf on the rocky seashore. The traffic was very light, with a 55mph limit. Stopped at small bay with amazing rock formations made by the ocean, wind and spray over millions of years. Little after midday we stopped for lunch at Davenport, all of the three houses and a seagull that it was, in a Diner, to eat ...
... time we got to Santa Cruz. It was here I started to think Paul Kelly's song "Every ******* City Looks The Same" was in some instances, at least, appropriate. Santa Cruz may have been cool when The Beach boy's "Surfin' USA" was on the charts and teenagers drove Woodies, now it's just another board-walk, more fat seagulls eating clam chowder from discarded leathery bread bowls. The fair is one long 45 minute queue for 3 minutes of screaming, $10 ...
... and within a couple of hours we were in Hollywood baby! First thing first we had to get food as we had basically only been eating one meal a day! Five guys burgers and fries..... OMG! The best ******* burger I have ever eaten ever.......EVER! Yum yum yum (brother Guy would be so jealous) Reeeeewind! I missed out the dump that was Venice Beach or Bozo Beach as we liked to call it! Full of homeless, it's dirty, everyone harasses you for money, food, ...
... grove where we took the Standen family photo. There was also a sign that described how the California State Parks embarked on dune restoration to return the dunes back to their original state. Amazing work and results!
All in all, we walked about 3 miles.
And, last evening, we had 7 of our family and friends for dinner. It was so nice to be able to return the hospitality that we have been shown by everyone on our ...
After checkout in Santa Barbara, it being a Sunday we dutifully went to mass at the Santa Barbara mission. Santa Barbara is still very hispanic, but the service was in English. The mission has been there since 17something, although with bits added and rebuilt over the years, partly due to 2 earthquakes; as far as the Americans are concerned its nevertheless about as old as it gets and it's therefore a real tourist attraction. Thankfully ...
