Central Coast

We left Sunday the 7th to take a short trip up the Central Coast.  We left here with an ultimate destination of Monterey, California.  We started our way up around Malibu.  We stopped for lunch in Santa Barbara.  We loved this little place.  It would be fun to revisit and explore some more sometime.  From there we departed from the Hwy. 1 coastline and made our way to Slovang.  It is a cute town full of windmills and danishes.  The town was cute, but the best part was the beautiful drive to get there.  Our drive then took us back toward Hwy. 1.  The coastline is breathtaking.  We stopped for the night in Grover Beach.  The next morning we drove up Hwy. 1 to Monterey.  Along the way we stopped in Morro Bay and at Hearst Castle.  We also enjoyed a beautiful drive through Big Sur.  We stayed at the Navy Lodge in Monterey.  The next day we enjoyed a delicious breakfast and then off to the Monterey Bay Aquarium.  The 17 Mile Drive was closed due to a golf tournament, so we ventured off the beaten path to a state park.  We are so glad we did. It was absolutely wonderful.  The next morning we headed home.  Enjoy the slideshow!!
