taking a break in cambria

August 1, 2012


 Cambria is a very small town in the Central Coast. The highs were around 70 with the lows in the 50s. It’s the local joke that it’s always sweater weather up there. Very true! We walked along the beach, went to cute shops in town, and had fun dinner parties! Taking a little break and enjoying family time in Cambria was just what I needed. I’ve had so much on my mind these past couple of months and it felt like I was finally able to unplug and unwind a bit. The best part about Cambria was that the house we were renting was dog-friendly. So Ginger got to enjoy a little vacation too! {You know how hard it is for dogs to lay around and sleep all day, every day}. I honestly would have missed her way too much and we probably wouldn’t have been able to go for the full week if Ginger wasn’t allowed. Here are some photos we took during the trip:

 Favorite Spots in Cambria
Hotels: Cambria Pines Lodge {stayed there for Matthew’s bday last year}, or rent a house with friends/family!
Casual Food: Linn’s {the olliaberry pie is famous and delicious!}, Robin’s {incredible salmon bisque}, French Corner Bakery {great bread and desserts–loooved the German Chocolate Cake}
Nice Restaurants: The Black Cat Bistro, Madeline’s {heard it’s good but haven’t been yet}
Things to Do: buy cheese from Indigo Moon and a baguette from French Corner Bakery and walk along Moonstone Beach, go to the antique stores along Main Street, drive up to Hearst Castle in San Simeon {10 miles north}, go to Harmony {tiny town- 18 ppl!- 5 miles south of Cambria and check out the glass blowers exhibit, plan afternoon trips to Paso Robles or Morro Bay
