Carol and I headed down to Big Sur for the day.
A Fun Visit to Big Sur --
September 27, 2010
There's a lighthouse just North of Big Sur that Carol
saw on the
Huell Howser California Gold TV show.
We thought it would be fun
to seek it out for a visit.
There's a YouTube Video
about the lighthouse.
The day was beautiful, the weather was varied. It was forecast to be very
warm, 90-95, in San Jose.
There was beautiful weather in Moss Landing for an early lunch on the patio of
one of our favorites, The
It got much cooler and foggier as we
went further South on Highway 1. The fog hid the lighthouse and we
zoomed right by it without realizing.
Continuing South on 1
through Big Sur itself, we finally turn off on a vista point to catch
the fabulous views.
There were beautiful turkey vultures soaring overhead. Had someone told
them about my last birthday?
On the way home, we stopped at Ventana
in Big Sur for an iced tea and a small bite and a visit to the gallery.
Next stop was in Soquel for dinner. Neither of us had been to
Carpo's before. We
recommend it highly. The food is good, the portions large, and the prices
We ate too much to consider desert, but the pie looked so good we
took some slices home. It was good.
