From Salinas we went straight to Paso Robles. "Pahh-so" as the locals call it, (not Paw-so like you're supposed to say it en espanol) is just a little North of San Luis Obispo close to the central California coast.
The great part about this leg was that Grandpa Dale (aka Papa Disneyland) drove out from Clovis to meet us. Right about the time Doug went in to his interview, Grandpa showed up with treats and DVD's to keep the boys from tearing the rental van apart.
We drove to a park in the center of town and that's when I fell in love. Paso Robles is such a cute, quaint small town! The downtown area has been restored and revitalized and is incredibly charming!
After dinner, we said goodbye to Grandpa and Claudia and got on the road again. Doug said he wanted to wake up and not have to drive!
So we headed for THE PROMISED LAND: Carlsbad.
