Seeing the Fatties

Pre kids Kevin and I would take drives up the coast at least once a month. I loved stopping at the cute little town of Cambria and browsing through the antique shops. Sometimes Kevin would lovingly suffer through a lunch at the Tea Cozy with their flowery china, pictures of the Queen of England everywhere, mini tea sandwiches, and a waiter who pronounced scones in snooty way. Now Kevin's favorite stop is this beach where the sea elephants or what we like to call them "the fatties" always are. And what we both love is the breathe taking views of the ocean crashing on the ragged coast line and the rolled hills (Irish green in the spring and golden wheat brown the rest of the year) sprinkled with crows grazing and vintage windmills.

So we decided to take a trip with the kids.
First stop: the fattiesNext: Cambria for some pie. No antiques and tea for us this trip. But the pie and hot chocolate was amazing and clearly Abbey loved her present pastry.
And on the way home there was a surprise...zebras!!! Yes I said it, zebras. There are zebras that live on the Hearst Castle property so very once and awhile you can see them from the road. But this day we could almost touch them. So fun!!See, Davey was excited! He is ecstatic over the zebras.
And in Abbey fashion she showed her excited too!!
Just another fun day on the central coast.
