Yesterday evening (Friday 9th) at around 5pm we needed fuel desperately and pulled off CA-HWY 1 into a town called Buellton but after filling up we decided to stay the night. After two failed attempts to get into motels in the town, due to a major weekend cycling race being staged there, we managed to get a room at 'The Days Inn.' The lady at reception recommended a restaurant to us for dinner called "Old Mother Hubbards" http://www.motherhubbardsrestaurant.com the food was all prepared and cooked there in the restaurant, all fresh local produce and tasted amazing. We ate like kings and drank the local merlot wine like drunken Lords, all for just $20 each - bargain!

Looking back towards Morro Bay as we make our way up the coastline…..what a chore!
Makes you think about it doesn't it…..San Fran' just in time to see the sun-set and have dinner.
The central California coast is my favorite spot of all. If I ever win the lottery I'll live in Morro Bay. The various roads that head inland from Highway 1 and Highway 101 are as good as it gets in the motorcycle world.ReplyDelete
I absolutely agree with you there Doug. When I dreamed of this trip in my minds eye was this stretch of the Californian coastline - just pure sublime motorcycling roads.Delete
Wow, you guys are piling on the miles...from coast to coast. Sounds like you're having a blast. It's been fun watching and reading about your progress. Enjoy!ReplyDelete
Live Free. Ride Hard. Be Happy.
Thanks for being with us Curt. We are loving every second of it. What a place this is!Delete
More beautiful views in store for you today. Highway 101 is a sight to behold.ReplyDelete
You bet Trobairitz - we're off up to Carmel and Monterey today. It's going to be wonderful riding.Delete
I'm glad you got fuel when you needed it, but I guess the trip was a bit tiring, since you decided to rest up for the night. By the way, the photos look great. Riding for such a long time must've been exhausting, but it looks like the scenery made up for everything. Thanks for sharing that, John. Take care! :)ReplyDelete
