Robins Restaurant of Cambria was one of the first recommendations I received early in my visits to the area. A local favorite and destination spot for travelers Robin's and it's two sister restaurants Novo and Luna Red (both located in San Luis Obispo) host every reason for their reputation.
A portion of Robin's enclosed dining room attached to the original adobe
portion of the restaurant.
Salmon Bisque and Chow (above) are two long
standing and infamous menu items.
|My wife and I even put Robin's through a small wedding reception dinner|
test. All of us passed with flying colors.
The coastline and it's small and large towns alike each have their natural wonders and some strange attractions.
|Moonstone Beach with it's beautiful array of|
|Cambria and Cayoucos both have a few great antique shops and a lot of|
history tucked in all corners of the towns.
|For a larger town San Luis Obispo shows it's community support and |
participation some cultural exhibits.
|This is really happening.|
|If you want to know- Yes. The little girl did touch the wall of chewed gum moments after I took this shot. Notice the anxious right arm .|
|Along the coast from San Simeon up north to Big Sur some amazing events takes place roughly|
2 months of every year. All done by Elephant Seals.
|Morro Rock always makes an appearance.|
|Do yourself a favor.|
Go to the Candy Counter in Cayucos and
order an Affogatto
|The Independence Day Parade in Cayucos is a perfectly preserved slice |
of small town Americana.
There are some great waves along the coast with a surprising small
population of surfers compared to other beack towns I have surfed
in my life. I wasn't sure why this brawl broke out on a Morro Bay beach.
A blog post which started as a quick review of a favorite restaurant has turned into a farewell tribute since finding out my family are selling their home in Morro Bay. This does not mean I will not continue to visit this beloved stretch of California coast however and era has passed and it won't be a simple task of packing up the family and jumping in the car. Having to pay for a rental will cut out our time and frequent visits short.
|Which means less funding for culinary investigating,|
|and frivolous antiquing.|
