Girls Weekend & Jawbreaker Fun

Posted in just for kicks, vacay by krisyee on October 12, 2009

This weekend I headed down to Greenfield which is about 2 hours south of San Francisco. My friend Regina and I decided to visit our friend Steph who recently moved in with her fiance down there. On Saturday we drove down another hour and half away to San Luis Obispo and Pismo beach for some good eats.

If you like clam chowder bread bowls I suggest you try Splash Cafe. I was introduced to this place a few years ago by my girl Augs who went to school @ Cal Poly SLO. Every time we went to visit her it was a must to eat here and as you can see, having a line around the corner is a norm at this place. But for their clam chowder and butter toasted bread bowls, it’s worth the wait.



Call us crazy, but we headed to a candy store around the corner where we spontaneously decided to have a jawbreaker contest. You know those fat jawbreakers that they sell but don’t understand how people eat them? Well, we tried to see who could get to the deepest layer.


After about 15 minutes…

While we worked on our project we headed down to Grover Beach. One of the only beaches in California that you’re allowed to drive on. It’s $5 for a day pass but you can pay more and camp on the beach too.

I had my car and I didn’t want to get stuck in the sand so we didn’t drive to far. If you drive further down the beach there are sand dunes where you can go ATVing. Here’s a pic of the dunes from one of my past trips.


We decided to just chill on the beach and suck on our jawbreakers. Lol

Over an hour of our contest I think we finally decided to stop. As you can see, Reg (right), somehow made almost a perfect circle, Steph (middle) was a little behind and just got to the blue, and I (left) was around the same layer as Reg but we just decided she won because of how she made such a perfect circle. Haha Good sober fun!

After that we headed to downtown San Luis Obispo where we walked around and decided to watch Couples Retreat. For dinner we hit up Firestone Grill. Yummy tri tip sandwiches and may even be better than Buckhorns. There’s always a line at this place too.


Yesterday on the way home, Reg and I decided to stop in San Jose to grab some Pinkberry at Santana Row. I think the only reason why I like Pinkberry  more is because it’s a little sweeter and I loooove the chocolate shavings. Haha

All in all it was a relaxing and fun weekend. Thanks Steph for letting us stay at your place!
