Even though the coastal highway is blocked here going north it is still worth the trip. We stayed the night at Morro Bay. After seeing the elephant seals the afternoon before we ate breakfast and went to the road block. The views were wonderful and the officer assigned to watch the barricade at the road closing was friendly as informative. We got to see a steady parade of trucks bringing huge boulders to the rockslide that caused to road closure. The guard explained how they were using these boulders to eventually make the road usable. We lost over 4 hours because of the road closing but we had already scheduled this into our trip.

Travelling the coast road, the road is permanently cut between Ragged point and Big Sur. We enjoyed Ragged Point views of the cliffs and amazing road engineering, reckon it was worth the detour to the Point and the elephant seal colony on the way and then back to San Simeon.

I stumbled on this property on Groupon. It well worth our trip. Our room had unobstructed view of the ocean, we could hear the sound of the waves crashing on the shore. There is a nice trail starting from the property and descend down to the beach . A very nice walking and climbing trip after breakfast

We spent a lovely weekend with our dear friends from back east at this fine establishment. The food was excellent and the setting perfect for making new memories. The rooms were comfortable and large enough to entertain. Each room had a back door and porch to watch the rain and listen to the surf. Lovely

We stayed during the week. The grounds are beautiful, and the restaurant can be excellent. (It can also be common, depending on how busy it is.) We stayed in a second story room with a gas fireplace. The private patio was nice, and the sound of the surf at night was very restful.

We wanted to hike the trail down to the ocean, but were advised that the trail was not maintained, and might be dangerous. We were guided to another trail, which was very crowded, and not particularly scenic (from our point of view).

We wandered down the coast to Cambria, and Morro Bay. The coastal Sea Lion exhibit was interesting. The normal half hour drive to Cambia, could easily turn into an hour due to hi way construction, and made sightseeing unpleasant. The road construction and off season timing meant many of the shops and restaurants were closed.

We have previously visited Hearst Castle, so didn’t stop there this trip. The Inn would make a nice place to stay if planning to see the castle, and offers a quiet respite from the cookie cutter motels along the coast.
