Spring Break 2010: Day 2: Cambria: Creekside Gardens Cafe

Cambria, CA is a unique mix of forest and sea. Settled on the California central coast, in between San Simeon and Morro Bay. It is large compared to the other surrounding towns, for instance, Harmony, CA; population 18. The main street includes art galleries and family-owned restaurants. Lunch was at the Creekside Gardens Cafe, I vouched for breakfast, their apple pancakes are tasty. The galleries hold glass sculptures, stone work, and other art forms. Cambria is also home to Lynn’s farms and their famous Ollalieberry Pie (best pie I’ve ever had in my life). Lynn’s has three stores in town with everything from Ollalieberry Jam to Salsa. Visitors can also go directly to the farm. The houses rest on the pine covered hills. It is not unusual to see deer or other wildlife near the town. A resident once had raccoons entering his house through the cat door. Cambria certainly holds a whimsical sense of humor.

Now to visit the ocean side of Cambria; Moonstone Beach.

Spring Break 2010: Day 2: San Simeon: Hearst Castle

Hearst Castle is a beautiful reflection of Mediterranean architecture. Located in San Simeon, CA, the castle sits on top of “The Enchanted Hill” overlooking the central coast. Hearst Castle is known as “America’s Castle”, and it was built by William Randolph Hearst from the early 1920s to the late 1940s. The castle includes elaborately decorated rooms and serene pools. The castle used to entertain many famous guests like Charlie Chaplain, Calvin Coolidge, and Winston Churchill. Now a California State Park, most of Hearst Castle is open to the public via guided tours. It’s definitely worth visiting.
