When you’re staying at Pelican Inn and Suites in Cambria on California’s Central Coast, you can start your day with Mimosas.
After a lazy, full breakfast, (including bottomless Mimosas), I crossed Highway 1 and walked for several miles along Moonstone Beach. I was sure I’d find a milky stone, but I didn’t.
I passed the day on the beach, then in the hot tub and pool at Pelican Inn. Dinner at the Sea Chest, five doors down, was a lively gathering of locals and visitors waiting in line for seafood. From my balcony, I sipped the sundown with a local pinot noir.
