Pismo Beach Sunset: October 8, 2015

Over the last several years I've witnessed many breathtaking sunsets throughout San Luis Obispo County. But last Thursday's nightfall in Pismo Beach is one of the most divine displays of light I have ever seen—it literally brought me to my knees on the sand. 

As the sun started its twilight descent, molecules and small particles in the atmosphere scattered, generating a light show in the clouds and over the water that captivated everyone on the beach. Intense hues of gold, pink and lavender lit up the night sky.

Following is a short video of this symphony of colors. You can view more images from this dazzling evening by clicking here

2015 Cambria Scarecrow Festival


During October, you never know who's going to show up in the free spirited town of Cambria. 

This year's Cambria Scarecrow Festival brings eccentric characters like E.T., Frankenstein and Tinkerbell to San Luis Obispo County.


In its sixth year, this festival attracts scarecrow enthusiasts who roam the thoroughfares of Cambria's bohemian villages in search of magical stuffed creations. 


Here's a peek at this year's visitors, who will line Cambria's streets through the end of October. 
I hope you find time for a visit!




Click here for more information on the festival. 
Hundreds of scarecrows are on display now through October 31 in Harmony, 
Cambria, Moonstone Beach Drive and San Simeon.
