We headed off to the beach in San Simeon last week to spend some time with Joshua’s family. Our annual family vacation came early this year because we celebrated the 50th birthday of Joshua’s adopted father.
Our first night we partied on the hotel’s beach (Best Western Cavalier Oceanfront Resort) with extended family, enjoying homemade cioppino and reading heartfelt letters to the birthday man next to the firepit.
The next day we met up with the whole family and visited the elephant seals at the Elephant Seal Vista Point. They’re on vacation too. 😉
We had lunch by the pool and hung out there for the afternoon until dinnertime. We spent that evening and the next couple evenings at William Randolph Hearst Memorial State Beach where we had dinner by the beach and played on the pier.
The next few of days were filled with hanging at the pool, eating really good food, and exploring the beaches. Nights were spent watching the sun set and falling asleep to the sound of the ocean waves. It was the ideal vacation.
Our final day we had lunch at San Simeon State Beach where we explored the tidepools and watched the seals and sea lions.
We spent a few hours in San Luis Obispo to experience their Thursday Farmets Market, and then it was home sweet home!
