Road Trip!

Carmel 1Emily and I are embarking on a road trip to the part of California I know the least…the Central Coast. It's also the part of California that most natives believe is the prettiest. The stretch from Morro Bay up through Santa Cruz is ridiculously beautiful. I've never driven the 17-mile drive or stayed in Big Sur, Carmel or Monterey. I've been to Santa Cruz (the north), and to Morro Bay (the south)–but never the points in between.

In preparation, I'm reading John Steinbeck's Cannery Row and Jack Kerouac's Big Sur. It's supposed to be sweater weather during our trip (50-60 degrees and sunny). Should be awesome. I underachieved this year for our anniversary and Emily's birthday. So, this should get me back in good standing ;). Blog posts will return when we do 🙂
