Very close to San Simeon is a quaint little town called Cambria. I went here in the evening for my dinner rather than eat at the Motel 6 restaurant. I would recommend a side trip to Cambria if you are planning to be in the area for a bit as it has some rather lovely shops and a good restaurant or cafe selection. I had dinner at the West End Bar and Restaurant which was very lively, good service and the steak I had was really really good!

The architectural style here was quite distinct from other parts of California that I saw. Imagine my surprise when I was walking down the street and came across the "DownUnder Trading Company" shop which stocks Aussie and Kiwi goods! I thought that was quite funny for a little town.
