On our final day in Malibu, we relaxed in the Airstream until early afternoon and then decided to drive about 3.5 miles down the Pacific Coast Highway to the Malibu Pier. Matt went mountain biking with a friend in Topanga, while we frolicked on the beach.
The Malibu pier is over 100 years old!
It wasn’t too crowded with people when we were there.
This bird was begging to have his photo taken.
I guess the shaved ice is a summer thing. It would have been a nice treat!
Matt and Christie usually get tired of my constant picture-taking, so they walk ahead of me. ha.
There are warning signs about the mussels.
It was a foggy day on the beach, which cleared towards sun down.
Gotta love the beach!
This side of the pier was far less popular with surfers and beach-goers.

We saw a lot of surfers out on surfrider beach.

The fog was setting in…

I caught a fog rainbow.
We were bundled up because it was in the high 60s.

We sat down to eat at the cafe on the pier, but they had just closed.
So we headed about 1 mile down the street to Plate, which has vegetarian and vegan options, in addition to meat dishes. ‘Earthy California Cuisine’ is their slogan.
I ordered a vegan burger and sweet potato fries…it was mighty tasty.
We stopped by Pacific Coast Greens grocery store and got some ice cream. Matt found this coffee ice cream by Blackbean. He said it was awesome.
At night, we had an old friend, Matt, over to see Airstreamy.
We heated up some thanksgiving leftovers in the oven for him.
He brought Christie and I flowers. So pretty!
We picked up some christmas light necklaces at Disneyland and decided to take more fun shots in front of the Airstream.
My neck is glowing…
Matt’s shirt is by O’Neil…also bought at Disneyland.
Happy holidays, from The Hibbards!
We set the camera on a timer and this was a long exposure.
We checked out of Malibu Beach RV park in the morning on November 24th. We realized that someone had stolen our battery, once Matt tried to hook up the trailer to the Expedition! We assume someone knows what they were looking for. We had the battery when we arrived because Matt was able to unhook from his truck without shore power. We realized on the way to CA that the battery compartment wouldn’t lock (it is located on the outside of the airstream). A guy drove past us on the freeway in CA and said the battery compartment was open. We pulled over and the battery was still in there. We will be buying 2 new batteries and moving them inside, away from prying eyes and hands! Our trip home was a short 6 hours and 40 minutes. Matt drove the whole time; he is a saint.
I am thinking our next trip should be up to Northern Arizona to play in the snow. Now, it’s time to investigate RV parks and camp sites in Prescott and Flagstaff!
