Plaskett Creek Campground

Wednesday: (05/23) Scrambled eggs and potatoes with ham for breakfast. We relaxed in camp all morning except for a visit to the arboretum shop and a few short walks. We departed camp at noon. Lou headed off home in the car and Dawn and I are head North a bit lower along Highway 1. We looked around Morro bay and Cambria on our way. We had lunch at the Cambria Cafe about 3pm. I had the burrito supreme and Dawn had a salad. We stopped for the night at Plaskett Creek Campground in Paradise Valley about 30 miles North of San Simeon.

Plaskett Creek Campsite
The wind was reasonable when we left camp at noon. When we left Morro Bay it was getting stronger and continued that way until we stopped at Plaskett Creek.

Plaskett Creek Beach Plaskett Creek Beach
We took a walk down to a lookout over the beach but decided not to go down to the beach because of the wind. Maybe another, nicer day. For dinner, Dawn had leftover oatmeal with a wiener and I had ramen noodles with a wiener. Hopefully the wind isn't around tomorrow morning.

(05/24) We ate our bananas as we took a walk around the camp. Along the way we enjoyed seeing a buzzard sunning his wings on a rock above the camp. We were on the road fairly early and stopped in Carmel By the Sea for breakfast at the Village Corner Mediterranean Bistro. Dawn had a Denver omelet and I had pancakes. They were both excellent and much cheaper that the other restaurants we checked. We continued on and the winds started getting stronger. We stopped in Pacific Grove for a walk about then continued on home arriving about 1430. Ernie took us all to dinner at the olive Garden tonight.
