|The last two days in Malibu have been a let down instead of the highlight I was hoping for. I wanted real sunny beach time. Stan wanted a chance to get killer sunset pictures. What we got was two days of overcast gloom...no sunrises let alone sunsets. We did walk on the beach but to get there we had to walk down the hill, dodge traffic across four lanes of the Pacific Coast Highway, and climb down a steep embankment amid huge rocks. The water was cold and the sand was covered in rubbery looking debris that I assume was seaweed.
Add that to the lousy wifi and the rude people in the office. They obviously didn't care. They had a statement in the brochure that the wifi could be unpredictable and they couldn't be held accountable. It wouldn't be so bad perhaps if it hadn't been so expensive. When you see an RV Park in a place like Malibu you think luxury and expect to pay more for that luxury. We paid but we didn't get luxury...far from it. The ad in the Good Sam book says ocean view sites. Yes we had an ocean view but with the overcast even that lost its appeal.
We spent the last two days running errands...getting dog food, buying groceries. We had breakfast at Paradise Cove which was fabulous. the coffee was served with A container of whipped cream and a chocolate cinnamon pirouette cookie. I got the "Damn Good Eggs" and they were. Scrambled eggs, peppers, onions, cheese, bacon and sausage served in a shell like and oblong taco salad shell. This restaurant is on the beach in an area where many stars live. I easily imagined them eating here often. We looked for movie star houses and again didn't see the houses. We did see gorgeous landscaping in front of Johnny Carson's old house.
We drove around Thousand Oaks and found a much cleaner newer area that I liked better than Malibu. Frankly I don't understand all the hype about Malibu.
Maybe if it had been sunny...nah.
We start home tomorrow. If we don't burn up in the desert, maybe I'll lose this bad taste in my mouth. I hope so.
