Shane, Kaili and I took a trip up the coast to central California for our 5th wedding anniversary. Kaili is such a good baby and a great traveler so we are lucky that it’s really pretty easy doing things with her. We took her to the Hearst Castle where we toured the Kitchen and cottages. She did great but one tour was perfect, anything longer would have been pushing it. After the Castle we headed down the coast and stopped in Cambria and Morro bay for lunch, coffee and some wine tasting.
We also made a stop in Avila beach. We poked our head in Salisbury Vineyard winery where we met the owner and tried some pretty decent wines. Then we made a stop at the Avila Valley Barn, I loved this place. It has a full farmers market, bakery, two gift shops, ice cream, fresh roasted corn and a petting zoo.
We ended the evening with dinner outside near the Avila pier, it was an overpriced dinner but the view was worth it.
I wasn’t great about taking pictures, I really need to work on that. Saturday we spent the day checking out downtown SLO and ate lunch at an interesting place called Novo, definitely worth checking out if you are ever in town. We enjoyed our anniversary dinner at the famous Madonna Innm they have a steak house that puts out pretty yummy food and I highly recommend the cake, it was amazing! Oh and check out the men’s bathroom if you ever stop there!
It was a very fun trip and I am already looking forward to spending our 6 year anniversary in London!
