While we’re on the topic of road trips, another road trip I would like to recommend is the drive on California’s Pacific Coast Highway, coincidentally also featured in National Geographic’s Drives of a Lifetime Series. We started this drive from San Francisco, passed by Monterey, Carmel-by-the-Sea, Big Sur, Nepenthe, would have loved to have stopped at Hearst Castle along the way, ending in Los Angeles. We did this drive during the first week in August of last year hoping for some good weather, but it was not the case. It was foggy, cold and damp. But, when you’re travelling, you have to learn to go with the flow and make the best of what Mother Nature will give you. We still had some fantastic views but would love to do this again on a clear day.
We stopped for lunch at Nepenthe Restaurant at Big Sur. There’s supposed to be a great view from here. But, we couldn’t see a darn thing.
See what I mean? This was the view – just a big wall of gray fog.
Wait – I think I see something through the fog! Haha!
And then the sun came out!
