trip report 25th June

Drove out of San Francisco onto 101 and exited at Monterey. We stopped off in Monterey and walked around the pier – took photos and ate ice cream. Drove to Carmel – lovely quaint and picturesque town with lovely boutiques to browse around. We then got on to Highway 1 and drove along the Big Sur. The scenery was amazing and there are adequate vista points to pull over and take photos. The road is very windy and can be dangerous in places but if you drive carefully and within the speed limits it is very doable and worthwhile. It can also be quite foggy in patches but once you get into the sunshine the views are breathtaking. We stopped off in Morro Bay and had pizza in a place called Sabettas – it was the best pizza I have ever eaten. Continued to drive to Santa Maria for a stop over in the Radisson. Reflecting on our itinerary I would recommend a stopover in the Big Sur area and a bit of time exploring it and it is an amzing scenic area. The rest ofthe trip reports can be found under San Francisco / Santa Maria/ Santa Barbara / LA / San Diego / Las Vegas
