Where I stayed
The Sandcastle Inn
What I did
We drove along the ocean road through Malibu, there are some seriously huge houses down there as well. Malibu is a massive area and took over an hour to cover. We also stopped at Santa Barbara, which was a lovely little city, very quaint and picturesque. The GPS was not playing nicely at one stage, and we spent some wasted time at a freeway intersection.
We rolled in to Pismo Beach about 4pm, and checked into our hotel, the Sandcastle Inn
Lucy, Gary and I then had a spa...or should we say a jacuzzi. This spa was outdoors but overlooked the ocean, so we watched the last rays of sun while we soothed ourselves in the spa. Totally gorgeous experience.
We were all starving, so we headed out for dinner at the restaurant next door, The Sea Venture. This was quite simply the best food any of us had eaten for some time. Gary and I had steaks, Holly had chicken and Lucy had a caeser salad. The food, wine and service was excellent. We are now tucked up in bed watching Conan O'Brien on TV. Our road trip continues tomorrow to San Francisco.
