Then we drove west, through the wine country, back to the coast. We had lunch at our favorite place in Cayucus and checked out a new B&B there. Maybe next year for my birthday...
Last, we drove through Montana de Oro State Park. They have a horse camp ground and miles upon miles of trails; some on the beach and some in the hills. We picked up a map and looked at the horse trails.
|There are trails up on that coastal bluff. No horses on this particular beach which is across from the people only camp ground.|
|The Montana de Oro coastline is spectacular.|
We also checked out the campground.
|Decent sized pipe corrals|
|Trails are limited to horses and hikers. No dogs. No bikes. They have other trails which allow dogs.|
|Cable Trail goes to the beach. I'm not sure I want to go on the other one...|
|The footing is perfect for Jackson.|
|There's a big Santa Maria style BBQ.|
|And a fire pit.|
So, the goal is to keep the horses sound so we can go next summer. The campground closes in the winter due to the rains washing away the trails.
It was a good Friday. Much better than doing that Black Friday thing at the stores.
