Throwback Thursday: Big Sur

Hi friends!  It’s Thursday, which means it is Throwback Thursday time!  This time I’m featuring a travel post from 2013 when we went to Big Sur.  It is one of the most beautiful drives you will ever do.  Hope you enjoy!
Hello friends!  Welcome to my third stop on this whirlwind trip of Cali!  In case you missed Palm Springs and Laguna, you can catch up here and here.  In the meantime, let’s move on to our third stop along the way. . . BIG SUR!  The Hubs had the opportunity to visit Big Sur last year but I couldn’t because of work.  Ever since then I’ve been dying to check it out and luckily I had my chance earlier this month.  If you have never been to Big Sur, you are missing out in a major way.  The drive is unbelievable.  Waaaaaaay back in the old days, the Hubs (who has then just the Boyfriend) and I drove the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia.  This drive reminded me of that but it had it’s own special California flair and wasn’t nearly as windy or cold.

I’ll let the photos do most of the talking but I’ll set the scene by saying we left early in the day while the fog was still clinging to the hills and casting a grayish hue on the ocean.  It didn’t stop us from cruising to our first stop and seeing these:

SEALS!  Hundreds of them.  They were napping, playing and making a ton of noise.  My favorite is the picture at the bottom right where they are hugging.  So cute.

Have you ever seen mist like this!?!?

The views were spectacular but the road was full of so many twists and turns!

We stopped at this really cool spot that had actually been destroyed by falling rock and this waterfall that used to fall onto rocks now falls directly onto the beach!  You can see it to the right in the photos below.

Readers, have you ever been to Big Sur?  Do you enjoy road trips?  Where’s the coolest place you’ve ever been?
