Santa Luis Obispo

USA | Tuesday, 19 January 2010 | Views [312]

After Leaving San Francisco we joined the Pacific Coast Highway heading towards LA. After driving on it for about 2 hours we realised that we had just been circling San Francisco, having left late to go see the Goldengate bridge, progress was pretty slow.... and then the rain began.

we ended up pulling into a small town called santa luis obispo. None of us had ever heard of it. On a recommendation by the guide book we went to a hotel in the centre of town. When we arrived the door was locked so we rang the bell and a guy who looked like Moby answered. The whole thing looked like a cult gathering. We made our excuses and left heading for the travel lodge.

We had a few drinks in town - because the town had a college there were lots of student promotions i.e buy a glass and beer for $4 and then get the glass refilled for a dollar a go in a "British" pub called the Frog and Peach.

We took a disliking to one group of students because they heckled the local drunk and when he steped up to them they had him thrown out by the bouncers. They tried to strike up a conversation with us, and buy us drinks, but we refused. 

ONce we got home Derby decided he was going to sleep in the cupboard.
