I have been meaning to blog about this for over a month now and finally the time has come! We have a ton of leftovers from our UFC200 fight night BBQ last night, so I don’t have to cook tonight, and my house is pretty clean since we had guests over, so I have no excuses. Zero. Right now I’m plopped on the couch and I’m ready to blog! Just to warn you, in advance, this blog isn’t about paleo, but I want to tell more people about Joe’s Place, and I will share a paleo/whole30 recipe at the end.
So, last month my niece graduated from Cuesta college in San Luis. Our family drove down to Morro Bay to celebrate with her. Last time we stayed there, we booked a cheap hotel, but this time we decided to try something a little different. We went onto Airb&b and booked a tiny house for the weekend. At first we were a little nervous, not knowing what it would be like, but the idea of having a fridge and microwave was exciting to me because I was in the middle of my Whole30, which meant I could make some compliant food if I needed to . My family was up for an adventure, and what’s the worst that could happen, right?
The home owner’s name is Joe. He lives in one of the oldest buildings in Morro Bay and has the coolest piece of land. You would never even know was there if you weren’t looking for it. When we arrived he opened up the privacy gate for us and gave us a little tour of the property and the tiny house.
The house was definitely small, but had everything we needed. Joe even chopped firewood and had a fire pit all set up for us. He supplied a little basket full of coffee, cream, and sugar. He had any type of outdoor gear for us to borrow that we could possibly think of. He had bikes, surf boards, boogie boards, fishing supplies. You name it, he had it available. He had an awesome personality and made us feel right at home.
We were able to sit outside in one of the many hammocks and hear the ocean crashing just walking distance away. I was so peaceful and private. Paleojr was thrilled too because right next door was a skate park, and luckily he had his board with him. 🙂 He had a blast!
Joe’s tiny house was one of the best places we have ever stayed, and we can’t wait to go back! If you are ever in the Morro Bay area or have an opportunity to stay at Joe’s place I highly recommend it. He was awesome and so was his place. Joe and his tiny house deserves a great review, so I had to blog about him! Thanks for reading!
And now I have a delicious recipe to share with you. While on Whole30 I ate a ton of eggs. Mostly scrambled eggs, but right at the end of my 30 days I discovered this delicious recipe on Instagram on Bethany Seong’s page @bhsfit. She calls it Banana Noatmeal. And it is AWESOME!
