My birthday was a couple weeks ago, and I gotta admit, I used it as an excuse to slip on my writing and my blogging. It’s not my fault! There’s something about birthdays that just makes you wanna say, FUCK EVERYTHING! I’ve been feeling overwhelmed with a bunch of shit, so taking a couple of days to just do me felt fucking great. The hubz and I packed up our dogs and road-tripped up the Central California coast and it was boooomb! I LIVE FOR THE SUN, so it was nice to just chill out. We hit up Carpinteria, Solvang, San Luis Obispo, and Morro Bay. I think I enjoyed myself so much that when I returned to work my body was like, ew what is this, and I immediately got sick and now I’m sitting here getting over bronchitis. I’m on the mend, but in the meantime, here’s a look back at our mini vacay!
After Carpinteria State Beach, we headed northeast to Solvang! I hadn’t been since I was a kid, it’s a pretty chill town, but you can get through it in a couple of hours.
We ended the day in San Luis Obispo, so you know we had to hit up a mission before we moved on. SLO is beautiful!
After we were done, we moved on to Morro Bay. It was a bit chillier than the rest of the area, but I loved the vibe.
We made a couple more pit stops before we went back home, but I did a bad job of documenting the rest of the trip. Y’know, sometimes I feel like people get too caught up in taking pictures and I’m a believer in just living in the moment and enjoying it. So, unfortunately, I’m missing some more spectacular views from Santa Barbara and Ojai, but whatevz, imagine it in your head.
I love roadtrippin’, so if you have a hot tip for a great dog-friendly trip that’s not a bad drive from L.A., hit me up in the comments!
