From Beverly Hills we went West to El Matador State Park but not before getting stuck in traffic on I-5. Now that the true LA experience was over we took a windy, high speed, mountainous highway towards the coast. The sun was nearing the horizon as we pulled up to our destination and we were awestruck by the view. We joined picnickers and photogs down a steep flight of stairs to the beach as our fingers started clicking away at our cameras.
There were a handful of decadent mansions adjacent to and above the park. While too sprawling for my taste, the design of this one was quite nice.
We then left the park for Morro Bay where we would rest up and prepare for the drive up the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH). On the way out we stopped once more at Point Mugu for a final salutation to the Sun.
