Big Sur, yes sir

After a trip to the Monterey Acquarium (the jellyfish were my favourite) we started the famous drive down Highway 1 to Big Sur.

The coastline didn't disappoint, producing amazing views, and with a clear, warm, winters day the sunset was spectacular along the cliffs, prompting many photo opportunity stops.


We stayed at Big Sur lodge, which was great and pretty much deserted in winter, and had beers and burgers at a cute little pub. The next day was more spectacular coastline and hiking with Ella in the backpack.

Huge number of sea lions at the bottom of the cliff

McWay falls: waterfall onto a beach - awesome!
