Georgie and Wal’s Travel Diary

Location: Santa Barbara & San Simeon, USA

MapStayed in Pasedena just for a night before starting our journey along Highway 1 up the coast. Heading up the coast passing Malibu, we stopped our run at Santa Barbara. Great coastal town, very liveable.

Along the way stopped at a small town called Solvang all built with a Danish influence. We thought it appropriate to then try the Danish sausage and meatballs for lunch.

After one night we tracked further along to a small town with a grand population of about 400...San Simeon. Stayed here to visit the famous Hearst Castle and the surrounding Sea Lion colony.

Good mild weather and some pumping surf pounding the coast. After my venture in at San Diego I gave it a miss.....and of course the seals make good chow for the sharks....

Come Australia Day we started the final journey up to San Francisco.
