San Luis Obispo

Madonna Inn

Have you ever wondered what it would look like if you squeezed a unicorn hard enough for it to spew out a hotel?

Ancient Peaks Winery

Ancient Peaks Winery exemplifies what I like about wine tasting on the Central Coast

Big Sur

Big Sur is a lovely place for a day trip if you’re staying in San Luis Obispo or Monterey. Pack a lunch, and enjoy a beautiful drive along the coast.

Elephant Seals San Simeon

Whether they’re fighting, scooting, or mating, they do it with no glamour. I frequently find myself in fits of giggles while watching them.


A perfect town to stretch your legs on your way up the Pacific Coast Highway. Enjoy a sweet treat, and a stroll along the beautiful pier.

My Favorite Coffee Shops in SLO

When you spend as much time in coffee shops as I do, you’re bound to pick some favorites. Here are my 3 favorite coffee shops in San Luis Obispo.

Avila Beach

The sun smiles down on this little beach, even when it’s overcast all up and down the coast, there’s always a pocket full of sunshine at Avila.

Morro Bay

Chill is the perfect word to describe Morro Bay. It describes the residents – a winning combination of old retired hippies and surfers. It describes the weather – bring a sweater, because it rarely gets above 70.

Montaña de Oro

Montana de Oro features beautiful bluffs, swaths of yellow flowers, and an easy hiking trail suitable for anyone.
