more SLO

In San Luis Obispo we stayed at a place called the Peachtree Inn, located on the northern end of Monterey Street along the strip with a good deal of the other lodging for the city.

The room was simple but clean, and it was quiet, too. I liked the charm of the place - one story, no corporate feel to it, just a pretty, friendly place.

We ate our continental breakfast out on the balcony/patio outside the main office area. It was so pleasant and relaxing.. here are some pictures:

That's a bird feeder hanging from the awning. Lots of blue jays were hanging around. Birds seem to be pretty stupid creatures. The feeder was filled with peanuts in the shell. A few had fallen onto the railing and could be had for no effort, but the birds ignored those and went for the ones in the feeder.

Here are some close-up pictures of the birds extracting peanuts:

After breakfast, sigh, it was time to head back to home base and its saturation of people and smog. On the way back we stopped at the Costco in Goleta where I bought a few bottles of wine that our local Costcos don't carry.

During our brief trip we went to the Costcos in Goleta, Santa Maria and San Luis Obispo. They're all a little bit different as far as the merchandise each carries. Goleta had the best selection of wines.

And that was the too-short trip out of town.
