roam if you want to: part V

Day 6: Manhattan Beach + Pismo Beach

The entire road trip we had been waking up extremely early, so we could take in every moment of the road trip without wasting time. The morning of the sixth day was no exception. We woke up around 7 a.m. to take a walk along the beach which was a short walk down from our motel.

Pictured above is the path we took to the beach.

Impromptu beach yoga.
Favorite breakfast spot of the trip, Uncle Bill's. Wonderful pancakes, especially the pumpkin flavored ones.

After finishing breakfast, it was time for our final destination: Pismo Beach.

We made an immediate stop at the beach.

After the beach, we went to The Rock & Roll Diner, it was in an abandoned train in a fairly deserted area. The milkshakes were undeniably delicious.

This was the view of the water along the pathway near our hotel in Pismo. We all went down to the beach to watch the sunset. We started realizing we were experiencing our "last" everything of the trip. Our "last trip" to the beach.

Our "last sunset" of the trip.

Our "last sandcastle" of the trip.

Our overall "last night" of the trip.

Day 7: The Final Day (Hearst Castle + The Road Home)

As a final attraction, we went to Hearst Castle since a few of us had never seen it.

Driving up to the castle on the shuttle bus. I wish I had brought my wide-angle lens to capture the beauty of the architecture!

Once we finished our tour of the castle, we hit the road back towards Sacramento. The trip was a wonderful adventure for the six of us, we learned so much. We saw so much. We lived so much. I miss these days already.
