am: 5.5 miles in 43 minutes. Mostly a sight seeing run around Pismo and Shell Beach. After the run I went down to the beach with the kids to dig for sand crabs and explore the caves. Then a swim and now I'm ready for the day at 11:20. We signed Abby up for surfing lessons this week, so we have to have her at Moondoggies Surf Shop at one for her three hour lesson. She was absolutely beat when it ended yesterday but really loved it.

pm: 3 miles on beach in 23:30

Jeff, My dad discovered this place called the Kon Tiki at Pismo Beach about 30 years ago and fell in love with it and the whole Central Coast. Since then it's sort of become our default family vacation. Google "Kon Tiki Pismo Beach" and check it out.
