Ever since we got stranded in Monterey, CA overnight due to a rogue mudslide caused by heavy rains that closed the Pacific Coast Highway before we could reach Los Angeles, I’ve wanted to take my girls back to the beach. I called that trip “A Delightful Detour”, and it truly was one of the brightest moments in a brilliant vacation. My girls loved our forced delay in the beach-side Best Western Monterey Beach Resort and I really, really wanted to take them back to the ocean, but this time for a longer stay. However, finances and time and commitments being what they are, driving from Calgary to the Pacific coast for a week wasn’t in the cards for us this summer.
