After our friends’ wedding the other weekend, we opted for the long route home along hwy 1 from Cambria to San Francisco. My little Subaru handled the roads like a champ (as she always does 🙂 and we soaked in views for miles, literally. Here’s a taste of the treat you might get if you opt for the long way home.
Elephant Seal Beach. These cuties had a lot to say!
There were quite a few seals on the beach.
Every pull out has a breath taking surprise if you take the time to check them out.
A piece of the road you will drive. So incredibly beautiful.
Goofing off of course. But really, look at that water!
The pit stops aren’t bad.
The sun came out in full force.
Getting closer to Big Sur, the coast line begins to turn into tree lines.
And of course, the bridge :). I’m telling you, take the long way home along hwy 1 sometime. It’s worth every minute.
One of the most beautiful bridge spans to see along highway 1 is Bixby Bridge. It’s massive and magnificent. I’d seen pictures of this bridge and had always wanted to set my eyes on the real deal when I were to make a trip to Big Sur. I was so delighted on our road trip last weekend that we were able to drive over it and stop to take it all in.
Snagged this shirt from Urban Outfitters on sale recently. They don’t have it online but in stores in the sale section. Of course I love the horses on it 🙂
Rob taking it all in.
Me being a little bit more cheesy.
It’s more than worth it to drive to see this bridge. If nothing else, you will at least enjoy the drive along the coast and through the redwoods. I can’t wait to go back!
