Cambria and Scarecrows

After the Fender visitors centre, I sat in the back of the car and listened to Terry Pratchett Audio Book Thud, and yes I admit it dozed on and off. After a while even the best scenery can get boring and this wasn't the best. I did open my eyes and got out of the car a couple of times when we stopped for a bathroom break and to get a drink. Then when I did decide to join the world.. we were near Cambria and the view was that of the ocean.. beautiful.. teach me to not take any notice of where we were. We got out of the car to take some pictures and also decided to drive the few miles back to Cambria. I am so glad we did as it is a lovely little town a real gem, some where you think .. hmm I could live here, and they were having a Scarecrow festival. All down the main road and the side roads were full of scarecrows. They were amazing as you can see from the pictures. John and Mark went and did the laundry, I wrote some of the blog. That was until there was a bang on the window and Mark appeared! Silly bugger nearly scared me to death. He said John was reading his book and he was going to take some pictures of the Scarecrows.. So the blog was abandoned.. sorry folks. And off we set walking up and then back down the main street and down some of the side streets .. that still had shops and things in them. I have never known soo many eating places in one small town. We must have counted over 20 and I know there were more even further up the street. On the way back up we popped into the laundry place and helped John fold the washing. Then we got in the car and drove the 2 minutes back to the motel.. yep totally lazy.
After getting washed and changed we had another slow stroll down the main street and found a very nice place to eat.. the sows something or other. Again by 10.00pm everywhere was closing .. so it was a slow saunter back to the hotel and time for a cup of tea and bed.
The next morning.. San Francisco and the last part of our trip..
