Due to this time of year, I have not given my blog as much attention as I should, or need to. So, I am sorry for the slight procrastination on my end but very excited to finally show images from my adventures on highway 101.
This trip has been on my bucket list for some time now, and I am very happy that my wee-little family and I got to do this. Unfortunately, the first few days were beyond foggy and rainy, but we were rewarded towards the end of our trip. Either way, we made the best of it, explored, and drove on the edge of the world! Relive the adventure with me by checking this post out
Some of the areas we explored (especially with the way the weather was) reminded us of Iceland. It was such a nice and familiar feeling- I could of spent hours here!
Meyers Creek Beach
Committing to a week long road trip with pets in the car, rain or shine, we had to stop to let the little guys play. Sand dunes ended up being our go to pit stops. What was amazing about the dunes this time of year was that no one was around. We had the beaches to ourselves. And the pups loved it, just as much as we did!
The redwoods have such an incredible spiritual feeling when you just stop and look up. Soak it all in. These trees are remarkable! Could of spent days there.As the sun started to set we headed to a nearby cabin in the redwoods to rest. It was so charming and incredible to wake up amongst the largest of trees.
Avenue of the Giants
As we slowly approached Cali the weather improved- allowing more time to be outside and explore the area. This made us decide to add more time on to our journey just drive through San Fran to see Big Sur. So, that is just what we did.
So, we watched the sun set over the bridge then drove a bit further on the coast and found a sweet little cabin for the night. Turned on the fire, had some wine and pizza and slept the night away till the morning .Big Sur blew our minds. We only had a day to see the ‘edge of the world’ before heading back to San Fran (where we had a hotel reserved for two nights) but it was so worth the extra driving. We just look forward to returning with more time on our hands next time.Time to turn around….
We saw this really amazing cafe/gallery place on the drive along Big Sur and decided it would be the perfect place to stop and grab food and coffee before driving back to the city. As we waited for our food, we enjoyed the views and some ice cream. It was the perfect rest stop.
San Francisco!Because we didn’t have more time in San Fran, we made sure to jam pack our days with adventure. The weather was perfect and the city was alive!
No shock that we would be on the hunt to find ourselves some good coffee on our stay…
And we did at Blue Bottle!
Last night exploring!Then the morning came. We had to pack up the car, check-out at the hotel, grab food & coffee, and start our long drive home. BUT we made one last stop.
The Beach! (and a nude one at that)
then we said goodbye
