SLO, Paso & one of the most beautiful roads we’ve ever been on
Good morning friends!
We got on the road early yesterday morning so I didn’t have a chance to put a post together. I am sure you missed my free entertainment, no?
Friday I went for my first run around our new ‘hood. It felt so great to be back at it again.
I’m looking forward to finding my new normal here. Whatever that is. Ha!
Yesterday we took a day trip to San Luis Obispo to get my fur did. Does anyone else kick their feet up on the dash to stretch out and warm up? It’s seriously one of my favorite things.
We got there early and dropped Bam off at the pet resort. Mike found Thousand Hills pet resort last April when I ran the SLO half marathon. It’s a mentoring program for young people and Bam loves it there. A win-win in our book.
Then we drove to our favorite sandwich shop ever-Stacked in Grover Beach. Every time we’re in town, we always stop in.
They use high quality ingredients and everything is so fresh. I usually get the Tree Hugger.
After lunch we hit up Starbucks for the 2nd time. Yeah, we need an intervention.
Then to Jackie so she could work her magic and make me look a little less homeless. There’s nothing like fresh color & a trim. AmIright?
I’ll post an after pic soon but I am so happy with it per usual!
After Mike dropped me off, he went for a drive to explore around. That boy always finds the coolest stuff. So after my hair appt, he took me down the coolest road he just found.
If you’re ever on the Central Coast, Pecho Valley Road in Los Osos, CA in Montana De Oro state park is a must see!
The views of the ocean, Morro Bay, Morro rock and the 3 smoke stacks off in the distance are killer!!
Dang, I really need to put together a Central Coast guide soon.
After enjoying the gorgeous views we picked up Bam. He had a 4:30 bath & pawdicure and was looking rather handsome when we got there. He has a ruff little life yo.
Then we stopped into downtown Paso De Robles for dinner before heading home. We both absolutely love the entire Paso-Pismo Beach area. It is our dream to live there someday.
I kinda love this guy almost as much as I love coffee.
We had dinner at Pappy Mc. Gregor’s Bar & Grill which was a winner. Mike had blackened chicken mac & cheese and I had a chicken salad that was the size of my face while enjoying the warm sun on the patio.
Our new home is a little more inland from the coast and I’m hoping it’s going to be a bit warmer and sunny but so far it’s been cool and overcast, so I soaked up the sun as much as possible.
We walked around for a bit and headed home.
Pet resort success.
What is the most beautiful road you’ve ever been on?
This is one of them along with Highway 1.
How often do you get your hair done? Do you color it?
Every 3-4 months, but I really should work on going more often, but sitting still for 3 hours is really tough for me.
What is your ideal climate?
Sunny & in the 70’s & 80’s.
