Apr 9, 2015 - Up The Big Sur

Pismo Beach... what a great tourist place to go and relax. Lots of hotel/motel/suites on the beach... and oh what a beach - long and wide. The whole place - very small townish... Looking at the weather, and since we didn't feel like packing up and travelling in the rain, we stayed a second day and I'm glad we did. Lots of heavy rain would not have made the drive a very nice one. The next morning was bright and sunny... off we headed up California State highway 1, Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) or Cabrillo Highway as it's also referred to......

Aug 26, 2014 - Trip Rpt No. 15 Monterey Redux OMG

TRIP Report No. 15 – Monterey Redux and Points South (OMG) Tessa boarded a 6:30 am flight from San Francisco to Columbus on Sunday, 10 August. I went back to the hotel to sleep after dropping her off at SFO. Later, I headed back to Monterey. I wanted to explore a little more and I had some paperwork to do – it never stops. The weather upon my return was still wretched. But, Monday was beautiful with blue skies and a nice breeze – if a tad cool. I tried biking again down the peninsula. Although the ride was bittersweet without Tessa’s...

Jul 25, 2014 - Santa Cruz to Monterey

We continued our journey south on Highway 1, passing fields of strawberries and artichokes. I saw a sign that read 7 avocados $1! We didn’t stop! The lady at the harbour had recommended that we drive to the aquarium in Monterey and follow the road around to Pebble Beach – this we did at a small fee of $10, but the views were amazing and Steve got to see the famous Pebble Beach Links Golf Course! This is the course Jack Nicklaus said would be the one he'd choose if he only had one more round of golf before he died.

Left Santa Barbara.. travelling to Monterey peninsula slowly up hwy 1 I must say if anyone ever has a chance, the pacific coast highway ranks up there ....the raw beauty of the coast, the cliffs, beaches, hairpin turns on cliffs .....just incredible !

May 4, 2014 - Oceano to Monterey

After leaving the morning ocean fog behind, we drove through beautiful mountains and farmland. I was surprised to see some oil refining and derricks up in this agricultural area of California. It is very green and lush, and we could see why, as we crossed over the snaking Salinas River many times along highway 101. There were lots of vineyards, Orchards (maybe avocado) and then some low growing purple produce. We saw a sign by some low growing silvery plants that said “pimentos”. I wish more farmers would put signs up saying what their...

Apr 26, 2014 - Monterey, CA

Hello Everyone, Today we continued our drive up the California Pacific Coast Highway, Rt 1 from Big Sur towards Monterey! Of course the scenery was spectacular, and the drive less scary as I am getting used to hilly twists and turns with no room for adjustment hauling an RV… Our first grand sight was the famous Bixby Bridge. We stopped several times to take it in from multiple vantage points and then after crossing over it, stopped for some close-up pictures! From there it was on to Monterey and all of its charm! We stayed at the Monterey...

Apr 25, 2014 - Big Sur & Monterey, CA

Left Cambria, CA and the nice cottage we had for the night and headed north along the coast to the Big Sur Area via Rt 1, The Cabrillo Highway. Beautiful coastal views along the way and we soon came across Piedras Blancas beach where there are many sea lions hanging out on the beach. Great to see them and watch them squabble over their spaces but talk about stink! At first, approaching them, I thought of wet dog but as I got closer it got quite unpleasant and I didn't care to hang around a long time watching them. Geeeezzzz!! Although it...

2014 Southwest Trip

Apr 14, 2014 - April 13 - Day 10

Northward! As we sadly depart Coronado we realize that we are running low on gas. We find a station with the cheap stuff selling for $4.99 a gallon! We decide we can hang on a little longer until we find a more reasonable price. By pure coincidence we have planned this leg of the trip on the perfect day - passing through Los Angeles at 9:30 on a Sunday morning proves to be a relatively easy task and we hit no traffic at all! As we exit LA the radio plays Tom Petty's "Free Fallin'" which greatly motivates us as it lists some of the exit...

Mar 23, 2014 - Monterey March 2014

Stayed at Marina Dunes RV Park. This was our first trip in the trailer. Weather was great! Took a walk on the beach. Then went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium on Wednesday. Spent all day there with Allison and Caitlyn. Caitlyn had a ball looking and touching all the sea life. We took a short beak for lunch at Bubba Gumps restaurant. YUMMY! Marina Dunes is a clean park, all the facilities were great. only problem was the location was too close to the highway. We could hear the traffic all night!
