We really enjoyed our stay in Oceano at a campground located near the huge Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area. This area is a 1,500 acre coastal sand dune and is the only state park in California where you can drive vehicles on the beach.
Nearby were horses and agricultural fields.
While staying in Oceano we drove up to see Bill’s cousin Joey in nearby Santa Maria. Joey is a retired Colonel in the Air Force who recently opened a Chic Fil A restaurant. We certainly enjoyed seeing him and his wonderful new restaurant.
Oceano and nearby Pismo Beach are beautiful areas with gorgeous ocean views. We even got in some geocaching!
Next up: Santa Barbara and Ventura
