after Covid letup a bit and the extheme heat of summer has relented some here in the Central Valley, I’ve finally been able to get out of the house and try to Jack my QOL . Drove over to the coast for 5 days in exotic Moonstone Beach on the central coast ( part of Cambria) . Drove up the highway to the elephant seal state park …. Saw the enormously powerful musk elephant seals ( peeeeee uuuuuuuuuu ) and saw what is probably the largest gathering of sea birds I’ve seen in my lifetime…. This on a beach near the elephant seal beach. Pictures included……..

getting out and taking your mind off “ things “ with some great QOL experience’s is GOOD medicine.

the state has those monsters well protected with special viewing areas. Imaging if you fell down into a bunch of grouchy elephant seal’s yikes ….. yayahahaha if you haven’t experienced the powerful aroma of the musk these monsters drench themselves with, the trip is worth that experience alone . …. WOW …

well ….. yes it’s a unique experience… watching all the tourists gagging and holding their noses and running is half the fun.

I kinda like that unique aroma, but then I love ripened runny goat cheeses too yayahahaha yayahahaha 😂😂😂

I was thinking somewhere along those lines too - hairless, abdominal fat, appears to be low motivation going on there too - seems like those elephant seal pictures might remind one of their current state, instead of taking their mind off it!

Before dx and pandemic my wife and I would go to grocery store together. I would talk, and talk to people women or men at the cash register. Leaving the store my wife would sometimes say "do you have to be an open book" "can't you leave some mystery to who we are". lol.

I could have been the guy in the George Thorogood song "She kinda funny" "Now you funny too".

Hey Brother K!!

This brings back fond memories of the beach behind the seaside bar I used to frequent in my younger days (bout 7 years ago😒).

No seals. Some were just drunk,passed out and others engaging in outdoor "recreational activities".🥂

Billy Joel wrote "I've loved these days" and now I kinda miss them...😢

Best Bro,

while out this morning we drove down that oceanfront row of weekend party establishments in Cayucos ….that’s an intense scene with the surfers , drinkers and general surf scene crowd. Some serious party hardy starts Friday nights lasts all weekends. Pretty much exactly same as Santa Cruise. Not a place for light weights and people that aren’t professional grade substance abusers yayahahaha

Lived in Santa Barbara for 35 years. Used to Windsurf and Kitesurf at Arroyo Laguna, just below the Hearst Castle. Right next to the Elephant Seal Rookerie. Some of the most beautiful Coastline in the US.

Uncle Whitey lives up there. Many of my friends have seen the 3’ dorsals on the surface. Occassional pod of Killer Whales will cruise through there. Good time to get out of the water. Like you, it always cleared my head.

Another great spot for your next outing is Jalama Beach just South of Lopoc, and Vandenburg AFB. About 17 mile drive off of Hwy 1, thru the Jalama Ranch. Halfway between Pt Conception, and Pt Arguello. Great store for lunch or breakfast. Store closes at 5pm usually. If you like to camp or Motorhome a great location. Have Kited there many many times from ‘84 to 2019. Mike

Kaliber in reply to DMohr011

thanks brother , this trip has lifted my mental funk … bunches.

Just came in from sunset on a tiny little ground level patio attached to these rooms … 64f, waves crashing off in the distance, gulls … pelicans and many many hummingbirds all getting ready for the perch. An ultra tame blue jay came over and ate a piece of pastry out of my hand, and sat socializing with me for a while. Zero concern or fear. A delicious break from the oppressive crushing heat over in the valley , fresh …cool air … I’m out of the house and doing pretty well doing this …. Considering . Everything seems nicer in my world ….for a change. Thinking that with fall coming , the weather will moderate and I’ll be able to have more of these QOL moments. Kewl …….

I’d wager to bet that many a mid American has never ever seen a sea Lion live on the Beach before ? The fur seals and salmon were so deep 100 yrs ago on our west coast that they were thought to be unlimited.

CAMPSOUPS in reply to Lulu700

I know what your saying. Almost half my childhood in Seattle. Grand parents San Francisco and Chicago kind of back and forth. Then last half of childhood in Iowa. Then 5 years in Japan. Electric eels etc. but no Sea Lion experience in Japan.

Kaliber profile image
Kaliber in reply to siouxbee19

yayahahahaya… no kidding but I kinda still can’t get out of the truck without my etrike …. Good thing tho .. those elephant 🦭 seals weigh 1500 lbs … 107.14 stones … are extremely odoriferous ..and are VERY grouchy - short tempered. Best seen from a distance. The hammer gets out and takes the pictures for me, I still enjoy the sights , sounds and aromas ( flowering plants, seaweed, smelly seals … much more ) …. mild temps, waves crashing, gentle sunshine, …all from my truck ( it opens up wide open with special suicide doors ) … maybe not optimal but beats wasting away stuck on my couch . 😁🦋🌸🌻

How has Clint been doing , any of that catastrophic weather been hitting you guys ? How have YOU been doing ? It’s been a while since I’ve heard . Hope you guys are cruising along nicely. ❤️❤️❤️

Seriously, it's so lovely to hear about and see your adventures! I am able to live vicariously through you, and your posts and pics have lifted my spirits! Stinky seals or not!

circumstances had formed that trapped me at home. One minor trip here earlier but only weekly trips to Kaiser otherwise. This is such a joy and I’ve been able to be comfortable doing it this time. Feels incredible and points out how important QOL is for all of us stage 4 guys and their loving care providers. Wasn’t sure if I’d be able to ever do something like this again.

Thanks Kim for your nice thoughts , I appreciate them very much.

Killer K, Awesome pic and post. Glad you were able to get out to cooler temps and over to the California coast. I grew up in Northern Cal, and worked in the Ventura, Ojai and greater LA areas. Always tried to make time to see the beach, and I practically worship the northern coast with the coastal redwoods.

Amazing how a change coupled with nature can clear out the cobwebs. Safe travels home with the hammer.

PS - I was going to make a crack about how you cut my head off with your photo, but Pickleball and Campsoups beat me to the punch. Damn them

Kaliber profile image
Kaliber in reply to Carlosbach

lol …..thanks buddy …. The beautiful north coast is more manly than, say , nighttime campfires on Huntington Beach. Lots of rain ( was anyway ) , rugged coastline, magnificent coastal redwoods, snow in winter occasionally …. As purdy as it gets. California is special with so many different but beautiful coastal climes available. I’m more of a San Diego than Crescent City type of guy yayahahahaya.

😂😂😂

Carlosbach profile image
Carlosbach in reply to Kaliber

love San Diego as well, but I’m kinda anti social much of the time, so I prefer the solitude of the northern coast (and a little of humbolt county’s best)

I remember sleeping on top of the sheets or outside in the days before ac

My wife and I had a great vacation in Redding a couple of months after we were married

It was April and it was cold and raining here in Oregon (“It was Sunday, it was raining, and it was Oregon”). We headed south looking for the sunshine and we found it in Redding. Temps were close to 80 degrees, and we got a room where we could practically dive in the pool from our door. That and the frequent and fabulous sex made it one of our favorite vacations ever. Don’t remember much about the town...

My wife and I started fulltime RVing in 1993. Four years ago we settled down in a RV Co-op. Unfortunately, because the hospitals were overflowing with antivaxxers, she couldn't get immediate care which ultimately killed her in November. This spring I bought a small motorhome and started on a giant circle to see friends and family. Just past 7K miles with about another K to go.

Loved the music. My Dad got recalled during the Korean War and was stationed at Pearl Harbor. I was in the 8h grade. Shortly after we got there, he got a hardship discharge and went to work at the Navy Yard as a diver. We were there for nearly a year before returning to the Mainland. Great times.

Not an ethnic Hawaiian, though people say I look it.

Indeed , a holiday is just what the Dr ordered, Clint and I have just come back from a three week holiday to Crete,a little too hot , nearly 40 every day , but wall to wall sunshin☀ will give us the boost we need to get through our winter !!

Glad you and your Missus managed to get away for a few days, great picture. It truly does help take your mind off things.... for a while at least.

Love the Moonstone Beach. Also stayed in Cayucos many times. And you are right. Wife, who rarely got drunk, got so blasted there once, I had to babysit her. Last coast trip was Morro Bay. Shared my room with a great friend who passed from cancer in March. Our usual Bass Lake Super Bowl blowout was canceled because he was to sick to go. We are going in November now. Lived in Pismo Beach/Arroyo Grande for about 3 years. At least the drive to see them damn seals is great. I am so happy you and the Hammer are having a nice vacation. You deserve it.

Plenty of venting and tripping down memory lane …. thats all good stuff too. Should be a fun read brother.
