After leaving the Forestiere Underground Gardens in Fresno, CA, I headed back toward the coastal highway and spent the majority of the day driving to Santa Barbra. I made frequent stops along the way to check out the diverse California landscape.
One of my more interesting stops was in Pismo Beach, CA. I pulled off the highway and maneuvered the bustling, touristy coastal town streets to the beach where I came across Pismo the Surfing Goat.
After our classes ended that week, most of the students – Andrew “Nicholas” Bottcher, Anna Davis, Ashley Shenk, Gerd Peter May, Sarah Curran, Josh Noonan, and Sasha Bugler – as well as Collin Schickendanz (former HSS ’16), all rented a beach house in Yachats, Oregon for a night.
