Moonstone Beach is the perfect place to go for a walk during #goldenhour. There's a boardwalk that goes along the bluff, or you can walk on the beach and look at moonstones - small rocks in every possible color that have been polished by the pounding surf. In the distance, you can see Hearst Castle perched on a hilltop like something in a fairytale. If you cross Highway 1, you will be in the village of Cambria, which has lots of nice restaurants and galleries. And if that's not enough, just drive inland half an hour and you will be in Paso Robles - one of the best wine regions in the world. I sat by myself.
My thoughts and a lone seagull for company.
Just down the road from Hearst Castle...on Hwy 1
#WeekendGetaway We definitely wanted to stay longer. Cambria is a great place for romantic getaway. The winter sunset by the Moonstone Beach is romantic and serene. Beautiful day along California's central coast. Great little shops and cafes in nearby Cambria. #roadtrip The Central California coast is as interesting as it is rugged. Their signature baked bread in the clay flowerpot. Delicious! We stopped for just an hour at Moonstone Beach, which was aptly named!
It was quite windy, but the kids had fun chasing the birds as I hunted for moonstones. Most beautiful water I have seen The Stones Beach #BeachBound Cambria J. Patrick House Bed & Breakfast: We absolutely loved this spot tucked away in Cambria, CA. Linda, the owner, provides a daily happy hour in the main house with h’orderves and unlimited local wine. She prepares fresh-baked cookies every evening and a huge breakfast each morning. I highly recommend staying here if you are in the area.

#AmazonDestinations #spon Cute downtown to shop, dine, taste local wine when visiting nearby San Simeon coast and Hearst castle. Good coffee, desserts, ice cream and smoothies here. Inexpensive tasting of good local wines, gourmet foods and gift shop when visiting nearby San Simeon coast and Hearst castle. While walking downtown shopping, dining and tasting wine, stop in here to learn history of the house and the town of Cambria, a short drive from San Simeon. #Blue
