Hike, Blade and Beach

Our next morning started out at a newer SLO fav, Scout Coffee. They now have two locations in San Luis and we went to the shop on  Foothill Foothill. The decor is on point and their homemade almond milk will make you sing.

I tried the scone with scallions and goat cheese which was delicious. The vibe was LOUD… I don’t know how someone could study there but maybe on a weekday it would be less rambunctious. scoutcoffeeimg_3454scoutcoffeeimg_3456

After our coffee and pastries, we headed to Avila to hike the Ridge Trail. This time we parked closer to Pirates Cove… off Cave Landing.

We started at the hill of doom, much better going up than down.hillofdeathavilaridgetrail

SO amazingly beautiful and vast. Once we were leaving we noticed that it had gotten a lot more crowded. We were lucky that we had so much alone trail time.avilaridgetrailwildflowersofavilaridgetrailavilaridgetrailpeace

After our hike, we put on our blades and rolled down the Bob Jones Trailbobjonesbladeseash

Once in Avila, we stopped for lunch and brews and then headed back on the trail to finish our 5 mile round trip blade sesh.midbladelunchatcustomhouseavila

Saturday Night, we had plans to camp at Montana de Oro State Park.   This is probably one of the most beautiful places you will ever go in your life. mdomdosunsetmdoimg_9237montanamdoimg_3499sunsetbestiesmdosunsetatmdoyummysunsetatmdo

Is this real life??? Views and Brews?!! On this somewhat stormy Saturday Night Libertine Pub in Morro Bay was pretty empty but a live band came on at eight that brought in more of a crowd. We enjoyed dinner and a few brewskies. libertinepub

What a fulfilling day!

Local Eats at True Burger

I have been excited to try Trueburger for quite sometime now. After hearing a lot of amazing reviews from friends I was stoked to try it and when the opportunity arose this past Saturday I was excited maybe a little too excited.

True Burger is basic. My favorite thing was probably their pickles.

I appreciate that this is a local restaurant and I want to support that… but if I am being real I would much rather go to In-N-Out. Sorrrrry.

If I go here again – I would not get a burger, fries and shake – it was too much for this old gal.

Also, something to note: if you are a veggie this may not the best place to go ( it depend on what you are looking for, of course) ; their veg option is a deep fried, cheese stuffed portobello mushroom.

I do like that they share a patio with a coffee shop/ bar next door. It was nice to sit outside and away from the booming crowd inside.  This place was PACKED on a Saturday night with what seemed to be local neighborhood families.

If you live nearby you should try it, but don’t get your hopes up like I did. It was not the best burger I ever ate but the service was friendly and I could see myself coming back here again to give it another shot.
