Just another average sunset in paradise!

Side trip (continued)

Our primary destination for the side trip was Pismo Beach on the beautiful central coast.  The beach is gorgeous and the town is one of the few remaining "beach towns" that hasn't been redeveloped into modern hotels and businesses.  The one attraction  that really brought us here was the Splash Cafe and their wonderful clam chowder.

Splash Cafe won the "Best Clam Chowder Award" for like 10 years in a row and probably would have many more awards but they took themselves out of the contest about 5 years ago to give other restaurants a chance.

Luckily, you can enjoy their clam chowder without going to Pismo Beach.  We buy it at our local Costco in Bakersfield but if you can find it I think you will definitely enjoy it!

After lunch we took a walk out on the pier enjoying the 70 degree weather in January.  The view was great and I would have to rank this side trip as one of the best ever.
