Cambria, CA

God has given us soooo much beauty - Recently my honey and I got away for a long weekend to one of our very favorite places. We try to go a couple times a year if we can. We stay in Cambria, CA a quaint little village along the coast of California - just an amazing place - we've been going up there for about 12 years now. We go wine tasting, stroll along the boardwalk by the ocean, drive up the beautiful coast, visit the Hearst Castle, see the sea lions and calves, check out the tide pools and eat at amazing restaurants. Here's a picture of the coastline right across the street from the little hotel we stay at on Moonstone Drive. Here is a view of the wildflowers along the boardwalk that goes along Moonstone Drive. Then we drove up the coast to Ragged Point and got out to walk their trails - here's a view from the trail we were on -

We always stay at the Whitewater Inn - it is so cute and quaint. Everyone is very friendly. They bring you coffee, fruit and muffins in the morning to your room included in the cost. They wash your car windows each morning to remove the sea spray, and it is always perfectly clean. It has become our home away from home. They also have a great mid-week special that includes gift certficates to local restaurants - one of them is the Sow's Ear Cafe - which is absolutely amazing.
This is the other reason we stay there - as I mentioned before the ocean is right across the street. It's hard to leave there and come back home.If you happen to visit the White Water Inn or the Sow's Ear Restaurant-tell them Paul and Maureen sent you!
