For Part 2 of our California adventure Hubby Tony and I got back in the car and drove south, then west until we reached the Pacific coast at Pismo Beach (which is halfway in between San Francisco and Los Angeles). We got there early enough to stick our feet in the ocean before meeting up with Son Brian, Daughter in Law Nicole, and grandsons Jay, Dee, and Ell at the condo we were sharing for four nights.
The large condo was right on the beach, and the bedroom Tony and I slept in overlooked the ocean. The temperatures were cool enough to leave the balcony door slightly open. Each night I fell asleep to the sound of the waves, and that was the first thing I heard when I woke up.
In the morning after breakfast we went to the beach, where there was some sand castle building and some supervised running into the waves. Dee was not a fan of the ocean, but it was hard to get the other two out.

Each afternoon was an adventure of some type-a park, playground, or a farm that had animals to feed. After dinner we would all go out for a walk. Back at the condo, after bath time Tony and I read books with Jay before he went to bed, while Brian and Nicole got the other boys situated,
Nicole stocked the refrigerator and pantry with breakfast, lunch, and snack items and we carried out restaurant food for dinner. Each night after the kids were in bed the adults enjoyed some type of dessert before we hit the hay ourselves.
