While summer has technically been in full swing for the past month - it’s only truly felt like it in Dordrecht for a few of those days. To my surprise, I’ve grown quite accustomed to the balmy 65 F average.
However, I’m expecting all of that mildness to change in a few weeks because we’re coming to California! Bring on the heat! We arrive August 4th and are packing tons of visits, activities and even some work into the three week stay. The second two weeks are set, but I could use some help with the first!
During that first week, we’re traveling to Livermore for my cousin’s wedding. I’m really excited about this because besides the fact that my beautiful little cousin is tying the knot we’re stretching the event into a little central coast road trip. AND YES THAT MEANS DRIVING FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 7 MONTHS! In one of the most beautiful places in the world.
We’ll spend some time in my college town - Santa Cruz, then Livermore and then Morro Bay - taking our time meandering down PCH on the way back, stopping at places like Point Lobo in Carmel, Big Sur and Solvang.
I’d love some suggestions on your favorite stops on Highway One - particularly in the stretch between Monterey and Morro Bay. If anyone has a favorite bar, restaurant or hike please comment or email me with your suggestion! Thanks in advance!
