Cali Trip - Day 4

Handful of caterpillars

Playground at the campground

Caterpillar mansion, complete with bedrooms, kitchen, and sandbox

Walking out to see the harbor seals

One of three lighthouses we saw driving along the coast on Hwy 1

Spent most of the day driving thru the 90-mile Big Sur region where I was enjoying myself so much that I never even pulled off the road to take pictures so I had to steal the photo below off the internet. There are no chain hotels, supermarkets, or fast-food outlets in the area, and there are strict codes which do not allow billboards or commercial development, as well as prohibitions against any new construction within view of the highway.

We did stop for a lunch break at a cute picnic area and very rocky beach


Tide pools

Hermit crab


creek running down to the ocean

Stopping near San Simeon to watch the Elephant Seals (they are stinky & huge & not cute like the harbor seals)

curried mussels

Stayed the night in San Luis Obispo, another town we fell in love with.
