Vacation Paradise

Because so many of you asked about our vacation choice, I thought I'd tell you a little bit more.

The hotel is the Sandcastle Inn in Pismo Beach. We've stayed in the area a few times before, and we really enjoy it. Pismo is close to San Luis Obispo, the town where CalPoly is located, and they have a great Thursday night street market that we'll surely attend again. Hearst's Castle isn't too far away, and Pismo is within easy driving distance from both Monterey/Carmel and Santa Barbara.

Both of my kids have vacationed in the area--for two years for Christmas, we've given them gift certificates to a quirky motel in nearby Cayucos. They've enjoyed riding bicycles while wine tasting, and there's a great place that has natural hot springs.

When we've stayed in Pismo in the past, though, we haven't been right on the beach the way we will be this time, and I'm thrilled I'll have a chance to just walk outside our hotel and be right on the beach.

And yes, I'll be sure to let you know how the hotel lives up to its promise. One more week of work and then vacation! I can hardly wait.

Pismo Beach. Isn't that where Bugs Bunny always tries to tunnel too? We've been watching a lot of Looney Tunes over here. :)

Your husband can join you on the beach - how romantic! Here is some information about the wheelchair rentals:
