Day 8 & 9

As we neared Cambria the fog rolled in, as did the cold. When we arrived at the motel the girls declared that it looked like a setting for a scary movie. Not because the motel was scary but it was sooooo foggy. We stayed at the White Water Inn. It’s a small motel, which is 100% smoke free and impeccably clean. We had 2 king rooms that connected. I had booked with their mid-week special. I think that it was $218 for each room for the 2 nights. You get a light continental breakfast delivered to your room each morning. Nothing major, again enough to get us going. Fresh baked muffins, fruit, bagels juice, coffee or hot cocoa. Each room also included a $50 certificate for dinner at a local restaurant & a $15 certificate for lunch. The motel is right on Moonstone Beach Drive.

You just cross the street and you can see the playful seal lions & seals, or just walk the path along the Pacific. We arrived at around 6:00PM to check in. This is another town that closes quite early so we just went to dinner around 8:00 then returned to the motel to rest. We ate at a place called Mustache Pete’s, mainly because it was one of the few places that were open. It was ok. A bit pricey for what you actually get, but it was not bad.

Cambria is a great place to stay if you are visiting Hearst Castle. It is only 15 minutes away. I had bought tickets for 1:00PM and we got there slightly before noon to catch the Imax movie before the tour. It’s amazing what people do when they have gazillion dollars at their disposal!We even saw zebras grazing on the property while driving back to the motel. It was an interesting tour and I would like to take another one some day. Today we did Tour 1, which is recommended for your 1st tour.

On our way back to the motel we stopped at the Indigo Moon, which was the place for which we had the lunch certificate. Although there wasn’t anything that really appealed to us for lunch, we were able to use it for anything that they sold there, like a bottle of wine, cheese, cookies, etc. We had $30 to spend so we got some cheese, a couple of bottles of beer, some cookies and some other stuff. The ladies there were very friendly & helpful and although they were getting ready to close, we were not rushed.

That evening we had dinner at the Sow’s Ear. We had $100 certificate to use from the motel. The food was good, the flowerpot bread is delicious, and the desserts were amazing! The place is really nice & intimate. The only downfall was that our server was really slow. People that were seated waaay after us got served before us. We returned to the motel at around 10:30 and turned in to rest for our drive to Anaheim & Disneyland the next day.
