Mid-State Fair and more

Beautiful Morro Rock at sunset

Saying goodbye to a day filled with adventuring. 
Finally! A new outfit ;-)

Daww!

Outfit details: White long sleeve top with lace: thrift store, tan and plaid ruffled skirt: a hand me down from a friend's mom, navy blue tights: thrift store (they were unopened), brown boots: Target, tan cardigan: thrift store

The time has finally come to post the last of my vacation photos! The first group is from the end of our day in Big Sur. Before heading home for the night we drove down to Morro Bay to check things out and found the biggest sea lion swimming around the marina. It's kind of creepy how sea lions look like they are staring at you directly when they swim around!

The next day we woke up, poked around Cayucos for a bit (took a stroll around the pier, went in an antique store, ate ridiculously expensive brown butter and honey cookies, gobbled down smoked ahi fish tacos) then we went to San Luis Obispo to walk around downtown and peak inside a thrift store or two.  Once dusk was setting in we hopped into the car and took a very backwoods route to Paso Robles. Before going to the Mid State fair I had only ever been to the Orange County fair (going on right now!) and it's definitely a different scene up north. I thought it was a more authentic fair experience (it reminded me of the musical State Fair) but there were so many tweens running around in Rasta gear which was odd.  I also don't get why anyone would wear super high heels to a fair that has dirt and hay on the ground? In any case, we walked around and got on the Ferris wheel (which was going absurdly fast!) and became privy to the excited cheers of the fans from the Keith Urban concert going on in the fair amphitheater. 

After the fair, Grant thought it would be a good idea to take that backwoods route home and let's just say me being nervous was an understatement. I don't know why but I kept expecting us to turn a bend and see some weird satanic ritual going on off the side of the road OR that the truck driving in front of us would stop and whoever was in the car would try to steal us or something. ANYWAY we made it home and decided to go onto the very top deck at the house we were staying at to do a little star gazing underneath blankets and a sky littered with stars. Bright moon beams illuminating the beach, shooting stars, the waves crashing on the sand, and the cries of sea lions on the beach were some of the sights and sounds experienced that night.

All in all a great vacation was had! Can't wait to plan the next one =D
