I recently did a 2 week house sit in Atascadero which is small city in San Luis Obispo county in central California. Atascadero is a beautiful farming region with rolling hills, wineries and only 20 miles from the central California coastline which includes the charming little towns like Morro bay, Cambria, Cayucos and one can also visit Hearst castle. The larger town of San Luis Obispo, and beach town of Pismo beach are nearby as well.
My first house sit with horses. One mini named Little O , and another horse named Hot shot, as well as Doozle the goat , 2 cats, rabbits, chickens and Tank the tortoise. Sweet little farm with a garden, and fun assortment of animals. Deer every morning in the yards surrounding the property. I really enjoyed this house sit. Enjoyed the animals, the farm, and seeing this beautiful area.
While in Atascadero , I went wine tasting Hiking To the Harbor festival in Morro Bay, The pumpkin festival in Cambria, and colony days festival in AtascaderoWent to Montano de Oro state park which is beautiful. Here are some photos of Montana de oro and Morro bay.
