In March He-Man and I went to Pismo Beach to celebrate our 36th Wedding Anniversary which you can read a little about here.  After unpacking and wandering around the hotel grounds we decided to stay close and have dinner at Ventana Grill which was right next door to our hotel. We could have drinks with dinner and not worry about getting back to our room; we could just walk.  The menu looked really good, and the dinning room was filling up when we arrived.

We ordered cocktails, and took them out to the balcony to watch the sea and talk while we waited for our table.  Blue Moon for him, and a Margarita on the Rocks w/salted rim for me.

Dinner:  It’s Latin American Seafood fare here. We ordered a meal in a stone pot. It came with Crab legs, clams, white fish chunks, a Ginormous pepper that He-Man liked, and shrimp, and the sides were rice, beans…

…and corn tortillas made right there on site.  They were so tender, and tasty!

Making Tortillas Fresh

We entered through a side glass door that was pretty ho-hum, boring, but we left…nearly had to be rolled out; we were so fat from dinner through the lobby where there were more tables, and a wall displaying vintage surf boards.  I like the hanging lamps as much as the surfboards. 🙂

We exited the entrance doors, and the waiter called us to come back b/c He-man had forgot to pick up his credit card. That’s only happened twice! It was a pretty tall Blue Moon, and I like to think he was distracted by me. (Fluttering eyelashes coquettishly) Anyway,  🙂 I waited outside and when we turned around to see and engage the waiter about the card look what I saw.

The waiter, He-Man, and those doors couldn’t get out of my way and close fast enough for me and my camera to start framing and making images! There were a couple of other couples  entering I had to wait for too. 🙂

This venue really checked off a lot of our boxes…beach, rose pedals on the bed, a bottle of wine in the room, a gorgeous sunset, a fantastic dinner, a quiet room, comfy bed, plenty of cuddle time, late check out, and even Doors! 🙂

This anniversary week-end is going down as one of the best in our years together.

At the end of March He-Man and I had our 36th Wedding Anniversary, but we kept it pretty QT since it fell on a week-day. We were anticipating our get-away to Pismo Beach this past week-end (April 1st & 2nd) to celebrate us.

He-Man booked a room for us right on the cliffs with a balcony with a partial view of the ocean and pool area.   The image above is the sunset Saturday evening from our balcony on the 3rd floor.  I loved this view.

The hotel we stayed in is the Shore Cliff Hotel in room 315. When we opened the door and walked down the small hallway to the main sleeping area we were surprised and delighted to find the bed covered in rose pedals (faux) and a tray loaded with two wine glasses, a pair of Swans made from Towels (towel art), a bottle of Sparkling Cider, and a card wishing us a Happy Anniversary!  Isn’t that lovely!

The swans towel art and rose pedal theme was even in the bathroom.  It had double sinks- I loved that! I wish my own bathroom had room for double sinks, but really don’t want one more sink to clean. 🙂

I’ll show you the little kitchen area, and entertainment areas of the room too.

and a welcome party of one came to our room shortly after our arrival.  He flew up to the balcony and stayed for awhile then he flew down for a swim and bath in the pool after leaving our balcony. (I’m saying he but don’t know for sure.)   🙂

I think that might be the Mrs. watching to make sure he gets behind his wings.  🙂

We went to dinner next door where I found a great door which I’m saving for a future Thursday Doors post.

We had a lovely week-end, and enjoyed our stay at Shore Cliff Hotel and love this part of California’s coastline.
