Yesterday was my final day in California and it was surely an amazing way to end my time there. I visited the deserted Guadalupe Dunes for a bit and photographed the eerie fogged over ocean. It was a huge difference from the sunny San Luis Obispo.
I then hung out with my friend Jeremy at his work for a bit. He works close to the infamous Bubble Gum Alley, so naturally, I had to check it out. The alley was just as I thought……a massive collage of pre-chewed gum! It was a pretty interesting sight to see.
I then found myself driving on Highway 1 again. I didn’t go as far as the day before, however. This time I stopped on an isolated beach. It was amazing. I was the only soul on that beach, and it allowed for some incredible photo opportunities. While I was taking photos, I heard a strange grunting noise. I thought someone had crept up behind me on the beach. I didn’t see anyone….so I looked out into the ocean, and to my surprise there were seals draped over the rocks in the distance! It was like nothing I had ever seen!
I ended the day with my friend and I catching the beautiful sunset at Morro Bay. The glow behind the famous Morro rock was just incredible.
Today I drove back to Las Vegas and met up with some of my family. It was a great but of course long drive. I already miss the enchanting California terribly. I began to feel at home while I was there.
For anyone who hasn’t…….I think every person should take a solo trip out West! I certainly believe it was the best idea I have ever had. I loved every minute of it and would do it again in a second. Now, I get to experience the insanity of Vegas for a few days.
