Exploring Californa With The Besties, Part 2

We spent ALL day on Sunday watching football, eating pizza (boys) and sushi (girls) and then we topped it off by watching Harry Potter during the early showing at the theatre. It was nice to just hang out at the house...I didn't realize how much we had to talk and laugh about.
Early Monday morning, we packed the car up with snacks and our cameras and headed to the coast. We wanted to show Andy and Alissa the elephant seals in San Simeon, Hearst Castle, Morro Bay and a few of the wineries in Paso Robles. On our way out of town we stopped and posed in front of one of many 'famous' oil fields. Gotta love Bakersfield!!
About two hours later, we could start to see the ocean. The view of Morro Bay and the San Simeon area was so beautiful...there wasn't a cloud in the sky. We couldn't have asked for a better day!
If you look closely in the above picture, you can see a few of the beached elephant seals sunning on the sand. After we saw all the elephant seals possible, we headed up further north to Ragged Point. Ragged Point is one of the prettiest look out restaurants along the coast. The restaurant is on the edge of a cliff along the Pacific ocean with some of the prettiest landscaping.

After lunch and a few poses, we headed to wine country in Paso Robles. It was so beautiful...the vineyards were so full of color!

We had such an amazing time with Andy and Alissa during their trip out to California. I still can't believe that we met via a fan page on Facebook for Jason's medical school. Once we got to the island for Jason's school, we hit it off immediately. They will always be our 'besties'...we are crossing our fingers for a little closer residencies to them so we can hang out more than twice a year!

**Alissa took all the pictures with her WONDERFUL camera. We were on a mission to get a Christmas card picture this weekend. I think it's safe to say that we were successful...a little too successful! Do they make Christmas cards with 10-12 slots for pictures??
