Berkeley - Big Sur Trip Day 6-7

I decided to publish photos from our trip backwards. Why? It'll appear like they are in order by the time I'm done.

Day 6: We left Big Sur early for Hearst Castle which was about 80 miles. The drive hugged the cliffs for the first half, but flattened out as we neared San Simeon. Nearby the castle we were lucky enough to come up on a couple hundred sea lions along the beach.

After the castle we headed down to our hotel in Morro Bay, where we got the pictures of the Zebras on the side of the highway. Seeing how I'm far more familiar with San Luis Obispo, we took the fifteen minute drive down for dinner. I really like the downtown there. A lot of great local flavor that's able to fight off the commercialism like in Santa Barbara. We went to a restaurant I always wanted to try called Novo. Not just because of good reviews, but a really pretty setting overlooking the creek.

The next morning, we got up and went to my all time favorite breakfast place in the universe, Apple Farm. Everything is so good there that I try to sample every item possible. Afterwards, we had time to walk around downtown SLO in the daylight before leaving for my show. Sad to end the trip, but the afternoon definitely left us something to come back to.
