Another Pacific View: part 1

For those of you that haven't driven California's Route 1, or the Pacific Coast Highway, I highly recommend taking a trip along it one day, especially in Central California and the area in and around the Big Sur. The scenery is simply breathtaking although I promise one day to return and take some pictures at sunset when the light is so much better for photography rather than the middle of the day, because I don't think my pictures do it justice. Still, I hope you enjoy them and remember to click on them to see larger versions.

Just a few miles north of Cambria where we set off after lunch.

Still not much further north and we were stopping a lot - I'd planned three or four hours for the trip to Santa Cruz but at this rate we wouldn't get there before midnight!

High up on the cliffs, the view to the south.

Pit stop!

Big Creek Bridge I think and the surrounding coastline.

This is one of the most beautiful places on the planet. One day I'll be there when the light is just right and capture that never-to-forgotten picture. In the meantime I'll just go back and love every minute I'm there!

One of these days, I'll get to make my inaugural visit! (And perhaps we could even cross paths...)
