From Santa Cruz, we drove south down to Morro Bay.
It was this leg of the journey about which I was most excited...
Amazing photo opps...
and a spectacular part of our state I had yet to see.
Bucket List stuff, you know?
The Bixby Bridge...
worth the hype,
Grey clouds loomed for the majority of our drive,
which only added to the mystique
of our adventure.
Let's talk about:
What a spectacular site!
the hike there is not really a hike...
it's a nice dirt path...
less than 1/2 a mile from the road.
and NOT to be MISSED.
Our next stop was to see the elephant seals.
I felt slightly touristy stopping off here,
but I highly recommend it!
Such a bizarre animal!
From there, it was a short jaunt to Morro Bay.
We will be taking this drive again in the future...
next time we'll leave more time in our schedule for this leg of the journey, and hopefully take some time to camp in Big Sur.
