My husband and I, both in our 50's, are visiting Calif. the first week in November. We will be traveling along the coast from Carmel to San Diego for about a week. Right now our plan is to stay 1 night in Carmel (we have been there before), 2 nights in Cambria, 2 nights in Pismo, and ending in San Diego to meet friends for 3 nights. I am now thinking I would like to spend a day or two in Santa Barbara. I'm also thinking I could probably cut out either Cambria or Pismo. Question is which one. I have never been south of Carmel. We would like to take our time along Big Sur and want to see Hearst Castle. Possibly SLO. Any ideas would be welcome!
