I'm finally getting around to sharing pics from our recent vaca with Rita to Cambria, which is a small town on the coast in Central, CA. We had a lovely, relaxing time.
We spent a lot of time walking on the bluffs (where we could see seals, dolphins and sea otters - LOVE them! - below us in the water). This was in the huge dog-friendly Fiscalini Ranch Preserve. I liked the bluffs path best because dogs have to be on leash there. If you go there, there are other trails where your pups can go off-leash.
That was where they had the cool driftwood benches I mentioned last week.
Most of the rest of the time we spent combing the beaches.
Moonstone beach is really great for beach combing! Here are some of our finds:
We found these 3 heart-shaped rocks. (Which made me think of Mary over at Tales from the Backroads.)
One day we drove further north and just pulled over and climbed down the beach and we had it all to ourselves, so Rita could run free...
...and chase and bury driftwood sticks.
She enjoys a dunk in the water.
And then of course you have to shake!
Not everything was beach- or dog-related. Like... here I am enjoying the sunset. I'm enjoying it through the bottom of an empty frosty beer mug.
When we got home I put some of the stones and sea glass we collected in these little fish-shaped bowls that I already have. Now I can look at all our finds every night while we sit in our living room.
It was a fabulous trip and not too far of a drive (less than 6 hours) from San Diego so we'd definitely go again!
