After breakfast we packed up and headed up the coast along the 1 toward Big Sur. We stopped in Cambria to visit Wally – the dog they rescued and had for a month before he was adopted. What a friendly dog, and Noah, the owner, seems like a fabulous fellow for him.
On up the coast, we stopped and checked out the Elephant Seals. Sprawled out along the shore line we watched and listened for some time before continuing on.
Everywhere was packed, as we seem to be visiting right in the heart of spring break. Fortunately, we were able to get into the park itself. We gaped at the Redwoods, wandered memory lane while exploring the campgrounds, hiked the riverside trails and enjoyed a coffee break in the lodge restaurant.
On the way back down, we stopped at Nepente, a restaurant sitting right on the cliffs overlooking the ocean. What fabulous views and delicious food!
While there, Matt calls and offers an adventure for tomorrow. We’re going ocean fishing with him on his day off!
We’re losing light fast as we head back south. Fortunately, the crowds seem to have dispersed so we are able to make good time. A quick stop at Ragged Point allows us to see the last of the sunset over the ocean and cliff shore before continuing on.
