Driving the PCH

We chose the long way home after a visit with my Dad (for his 93rd birthday). Highway 1, California’s Pacific Coast Highway, stretches the length of the state and offers some of the most stunning coastal views you’ll find anywhere.  We drove the section from San Luis Obispo to Monterey, taking advantage of a few of the roadside stops along the way.


Even our liquor store deli sandwiches tasted gourmet with a view like this.


Spectacular views come into focus around every bend of the Pacific Coast Highway.


When the views open up to the east, they are every bit as beautiful as the scenes across the Pacific.


It’s not easy to keep cars moving along this highway.  Roadwork continues along parts of the road.


A trip to California is not complete without a drive up the iconic Pacific Coast Highway.
