I am gonna agree with this.
A redneck doesnt drink craft beer till hes over 40. Ask me how i know.
Shelter cove hotel for $180 is a true bargain. Serously. Rio dell has no ocean front anything. Get the shelter cove motel and call it the price of good living. You can walk to the bar and the beach in 5 min.
The money and effort you spend on horsing around the 101 will more than cover it. The ladys want to be comfy at night. Dont cheep out on this one bro.
From shelter cove hike south about 2 miles along the beach. There is an old aircraft carcass among the sand crabs. It went in the breakers after a dual engine flameout. Circa 1997. I was USCG at that time and arrived too late. Yada yada.
