Beautiful clean beach

After traveling up highway 1 from LA to Monterey, we came inland, and hit the highway back to Pismo Beach for the night on the way back. Most of California's central coast is rugged, so the kids were waiting, and waiting, to swim in the ocean at the beach. "Don't worry...just wait until we get to Pismo Beach". The beach was beautiful and clean with very soft sand. Unfortunately, in July, it was freezing- the air temperature was about 60 degrees. The kids insisted on playing in the water, but it only lasted about 20min, until they were numb.

Strolling the streets for dinner

While freezing, we decided to stop for dinner before going back to dip in the hot tub at the hotel. We couldn't resist the smell of barbeque as we passed the surfing pigs at Mo's. Review coming soon!

The last sunset

I had to catch a picture of the last sunset of our summer vacation. I'll miss you!
