Anyway, after we picked up Penga-Sis, we drove down to San Luis Obispo to say hi to Penga-Bro, who was leaving soon for his own weekend trip to Yosemite. Like every time we visit our Alma mater, I was overcome with emotion and kept repeating "Oh, the nostalgia" all geezer-like. Seriously happy memories in that sleepy college town. We picked up some donuts for breakfast from the newish SLO Donut Company, and continued down the road.
|Their maple bacon bar wasn't quite as good as Voodoo's, but their banana fritter was delicious!|
|Can you spot Penga-Sis?|
|Up close and personal with a meerkatty.|
|You can feed the giraffes there, though we were lame and didn't want to wait in line.|
|Like a bleeding heart pigeon. Seriously, it's chest feathers looks like a horrible wound!|
|And a dinosaur!|
Though she's passed on, the zoo now has "penguin with a shoe".
Anyway, after cruising around Santa Barbara a bit, we headed further South, looking for beaches to stop at in the meantime.
|Pretty crowded. And diva-fied.|
|She approved. How could she not? Yum.|
|Korean turtle boat!|
|Engraved turtle shell.|
|Nice day for a walk along the docks!|
|Which tasted...like fish and chips, actually.|
