We made our way down the Pacific Coast Highway again to stay with Lizzy’s other brother in LA. It was a beautiful sunny day and perfect for a drive. We stopped at the famous Carmel-by-the-Sea for a quick run to the beach. We also tried to visit Pfeiffer Beach in Big Sur, but the line for parking was SO long that we eventually bailed.
Instead, we stopped at Cafe Kevah for a quick cup and to take in the views from the balcony.
We didn’t drive Route 1 the whole way – it got crowded in the afternoon and really slowed down. Still, the portion I drove was windy, fun and filled with spectacular views.
We spent the night in LA: got some great Asian food for dinner, shared a few California beers, soaked in the hot tub and had a well-deserved rest. The next morning (after brunch, of course) I dropped Lizzy off at LAX and she headed back East. I was headed back East, too, but it would take much longer. Those updates to come soon!
