Hmmmm, kind of sounds more like you were in Austin...

Ha! Jaye beat me to it. I was going to say, I thought California had exported all those people to Texas, specifically Austin. But NEVERMIND.

Too much surf-ness, not enough cowboy apparel to confuse it with Austin, which is a great city, surrounded by Texas on all sides.
Also, the whole bloody state (with some subtle subregional variations) is like that, while Austin is more of an isolated case study.

What, you saw no one in leather chaps with only a g-string underneath?

Cowboy apparel in AUSTIN? When's the last time you were here, 1974?

As of 2003 I saw that at the airport. DEFINITELY no surfers.

Middle-aged men in ponytails (especially if they've greased them back) are one of my least favourite things, pardon my syntax.

My maternal birth-grandfather (work that one out) has a ponytail. He is 74.
One of the moments I give a quiet thanks that I was adopted.
But this isn't about me. It's about being so very glad that you're back.
Tell me, because I am a glutton for punishment, did you all wear matching outfits this year?

Only some of the time. The fact we were not 100% matchy-matchy excited much comment. In fact, it was the first thing Poppy said to us.
