On our second day we headed off to Cambria (another quaint town filled with Bed & Breakfasts, cute restaurants, and picturesque views) and ate at Linn's for lunch. Grant and I shared a veggie pot pie (although I had to pick out the chunks of tofu...something about the texture gives me the heeby jeebies!) that came with a side of lumpy mashed potatoes and then we had a slice of olalliberry pie and washed it down with a root beer. It was all super good. 

After lunch we drove to Moon Stone beach and did some 'splorin. It was such a nice day, the sky was bright blue and the ocean was a deep blue. We saw some dolphins and so many squirrels scurrying around the beach steps! I thought it was going to be way colder so I packed quasi-cold weather clothing...I need to consult an accurate 7 Day Forecast weather widget for next time. In any case, what I wore was appropriate since it was still comfortable and we did lots of meandering off the beaten path so those boots were life savers.

One of the highlights of the day was seeing a pack of deer running side by side off the side of the road! So awesome. I knew I said that I'd lump Cambria and Big Sur together on my last post but the areas we visited were so distinct that it makes more sense to separate them again! 

Coming up: Big Sur
