Pacific Coast Highway

Beautiful Big Sur

There was something almost bittersweet about this part of our trip; it was what I considered the epitome of our Californian adventure, but it also marked the end of our stay.

Santa Cruz

Driving south from San Francisco, we stopped off in Santa Cruz. As you can see from the pictures, it was pouring down, so after a quick bite to eat and stroll around the boardwalk we were back on the road.

Monterey

We checked into the Monterey Plaza Hotel and Spa, an hour or so down the coast. Still raining, we headed to the city’s famous aquarium which had great interactive displays. Afterwards, we took a dip in the hotel’s rooftop hot tub.

Big Sur

The following morning, we were up bright and early, excited to drive along the iconic Big Sur. Unfortunately it was a pretty gloomy day – but at least I’ve got an excuse to go back!

Cambria

A few hours (and several ‘vista point’ stops!) later, we arrived in the coastal town of Cambria. We decided to stop here for the night to break up the driving.

Late afternoon, after two days of rain, the Californian sun finally came out. We sat and watched the surfers before it eventually set on Moonstone Beach.

As you can see, it was beautiful.
