For my mom’s 60th birthday present, we took them camping at her favorite beach, Morro Bay. It was a little cramped in our trailer, but definitely tons of fun and we made memories that will last!
We stayed at Morro Dunes RV park. This is definitely a park for older, retired people. We only saw one other family with kids the entire weekend. The sites were pretty small and cramped so it was hard for the kids to play at the trailer. Kyle and I both agree we have no desire to stay there again. One nice perk to the place though was it was just a couple minute walk to the beach.
Friday night we arrived and got set up and Kyle made us burgers on his new 3 burner camp stove and griddle. We hung out by the campfire and made s’mores. I got these great shots of my parents and also with their grandkids.
Saturday we got up, made a great breakfast and then went for a walk on the beach. My dad had never seen a selfie stick till I busted mine out. Wyatt lost his shoes on the beach and my dad needed new ones so we headed to the outlets at Pismo to buy shoes.
Then mom wanted to go to Doc Burnstein’s ice cream laboratory in Arroyo Grande for a treat. That’s always a fun place to visit and the boys love the toy train that is running around the top of the restaurant.
We went back and went to the beach. The wind was still rough so we ended up setting up in the dunes and the boys had lots of fun playing in the sand.
We headed back and Kyle made fabulous tri-tip with beans and a salad for dinner. My parents watched Despicable Me with the boys in the evening in the trailer and Kyle and I enjoyed the campfire and made plans for our next 3 months of trips.
Sunday morning we got up and cleaned everything up because the wind was blowing it all away and then we headed back to the bay to kayak.
We had a fabulous time kayaking. James rode with me and Kyle had the 2 little ones with him. James probably inhibited me paddling more than he helped, but it was still great! We saw otters, sea lions, fish, and birds while we were out there. There was some wind that made it a bit difficult, but we managed.
