Don’t know how we missed the storms but we did.

Since we cut our trip short and weren’t miserable from riding in rain we threw our bags in the pickup and hit the road. A few years ago Lori covered a bunch of stories on Crystal Cove. It’s a long tale but it ends in the creation of Crystal Cove Cottages State Park. They rent these cool old refurbished beach cottages but you need to make a reservation six months to the day to get one. We’ve tried a few times and never had any luck but thought we’d stop by and see if they had a cancellation. They did, so we snagged it and here we are! The pictures pretty much explain it, plus they have free coffee. Parking is in a secure lot across PCH from the beach with a tunnel or shuttles for access. You can ride a motorcycle here but you’d have to park in the lot.

We’re going to post this now so you can stop worrying about us and get some sleep. For Lori’s story go to bondorella.com
