On the move….. from the Palace to SFO past Brisbane in San Francisco we picked up the car and went south. Headed for Carmel in the Monterey peninsula we knew it was going to be pretty. Not knowing where we were going was a bit difficult.
We got to the bit where it said seventeen mile drive went past Pebble Beach Golf links, one of the world’s most iconic golf courses. We went down that road. The trip was nice and we managed to take a short cut to the course. Honestly, you don’t expect to be on the 18th green of an absolutely iconic golf course looking up the fairway but at Pebble Beach you can. It was very special.
We moved on down the road and ended up in Carmel the town where Clint Eastwood was major. Nice spot and the main street was a great place to shop. Our hotel La Playa was nicely presented and the staff were friendly and helpful. The bar was great and we were given a wine tasting food and a herbal cold remedy for me. Can’t complain!!
Today we had a very nice breakfast at La Playa and headed off on Route 1 south towards LA. We had the great news that Route 1 was now open after a year of being closed due to the fires and land slides stop our stop in Carmel. The biggest issue was the fog. All the way we had cloud but every gap in the cloud we took pictures. It was beautiful and would have been more beautiful if the day had been clear.
No worries Pismo Beach is great. The hotel is well worth it. It’s almost like an English beach holiday destination. Fish and chips and people on a beach which is cold!! Lovely spot worth a visit!! Hope you enjoy the photos. Come to visit we have lots more!!!
Off to dinner now Pismo Beach…..
