Road Trip Day 18: Silent Sunday

Pumpkin patches pushing pumpkins.

A lighthouse

More Parasailing

Pounding surf

Lots of parasailing

Popular pastime!

Moseying along in Monterey!

Major marina!

Downtown Monterey

Monterey water views
An inn by the sea

Blown away by Big Sur!

Caves in the cliffs!

Dozens of bridges over chasms. . .

The view from the cliffs of Big Sur

More breath-taking vistasAnd amazing mountains

Just when you think it's too beautiful. . .

You're struck again by more!

Then, a front starts to move in... a wall of fog!

Arriving at San Luis Obispo

That's all for Silent Sunday!

Hi Eva! I love reading about your's like you're traveling through my life! Pig N Pancake is my kids' favorite restaurant when we go to the coast; Dooger's can't be beat. And my folks live just outside San Luis Obispo! I'm glad you're having such a great time!

Hey Eva, you're certainly having a great time of it. Amazing photos, especially liked the Indian thingy! Feel like I'm there with you parasailing and smelling the fresh ocean breeze. Memories really are made of this:)

I'm SO jealous! Oh Eva! I can't believe you may be coming to a place near me! Are you making your way into Southern Cali any time soon? Sorry . . . I'm a bit behind on blogs, but I've been following you on every step of your journey! :) For my birthday in November, I'll be taking a trip up to Northern California. :)

Hi Eva,

I want to thank you for visiting my blog and I'm so sorry it took me a long time to respond. As you can see, that one blog of mine hasn't been updated properly. I will try my best to do so especially since there are 16 people who seems to want me to. Thanks again for your encouraging words.

Oh,and what spectacular views these are! How I'd love to see them for real:)

I ♥ Monterey....and Pacific Grove....all of the cute victorian homes...that area is absolutely gorgeous!

I really must protest this post. Did you completely snub Santa Cruz? But Monterey is cute enough, I suppose. I do hope you took a moment to turn aside and hit a trail or two at Pfeiffer or Andrew Molera. Ah, my stomping grounds. A beautiful drive through, I'll admit, but really - too good not to stomp a bit!

Says the guy who drove past the Grand Canyon exit doing 70 mph. But I had my excuses! It was 3 AM.
