The Pacific Ocean is only 25 miles west via highway 46. Many interesting sights await at the coast. Upon hitting highway 1…a major destination in itself…a left turn takes you south to the classic beach towns of Cayucos and Morro Bay, and the tiny town of Harmony. Turn right to the quaint village of Cambria and Hearst Castle perched high upon a local mountain.
Back in Paso Robles, we take a little time to relax at the hotel and go for a swim. Across the street from our base of operations, the Best Western Black Oak Inn, is the local fairgrounds.
Again, it’s back into the deserted grounds. We get to the gate…and it’s locked. We walk to the administration building. It’s locked and so is the gate next to it. Again and again, we walk along the perimeter fence. Every gate is locked. We can find no one.
