Our Favorite #CentralCoasting Entries: November

November disappeared faster than the mashed potatoes and gravy at Thanksgiving dinner, which means that it’s already “the most wonderful time of the year!” Can you believe it? Us, either. Before we get wrapped up in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, we wanted to extend the feelings of gratitude leftover from Thanksgiving and show how grateful we are for our favorite November #CentralCoasting entries below.

1. “Hanging on to that last bit of summer before I retreat to the mountains” by @claytona1

What We Love: There’s like nothing like enjoying the Inn at the Cove‘s private beach with a good book in hand and a cold beer by your side—especially during a Pismo Beach sunset! #CentralCoasting is all about taking time to feel the sand between your toes and appreciating the moment, just like Clayton did!

3. “The humans brought me with them on a weekend getaway and I loved every moment of it!” by @rollie_thefrenchie

What We Love: Even the dogs can appreciate the oceanfront views at the Inn at the Cove, a dog-friendly hotel in Pismo Beach! We believe that every member of the family should be included on vacation, so check out our #CentralCoasting dog-friendly itinerary by clicking here.

What We Love: More dogs! We can’t help but include these adorable shots with Clarabelle the Wine Cow out front of the Paso Robles Inn as one of our favorites. Besides, what’s better than giving back to the community with Cow Parade SLO and puppy pictures?
