Subject: Re: San Luis Obispo, CA vicinity

Check out Avila Beach or Pismo Beach. They are on the ocean near SLO. Amtrak can terrible along the coast. I have heard from friends that the time it has taken is about twice as long as the schedule. We had a bad experience taking Amtrak from Colfax, Ca to Reno, Nv. Takes one and half hours by car, took us 4 hours going, 3 hours returning after train was 6 hours late.

Have fun, Hank
