Driving Highway 1

After breakfast, we picked up a Jeep and headed down Highway 1. With it being a holiday week, it was pretty crowded but that was offset by all the pretty towns and beaches we drove by. We stopped in Santa Cruz for lunch at The Picnic Basket. I had a yummy grilled cheese that I enjoyed while listening to people sing karaoke across the street at a bar -- pretty entertaining.
Trying to capture selfies from the pier, not drop my phone and get the beach in it proved to be slightly more difficult than imagined.
Vintage fishing boat.
Old Fisherman's Wharf in Monterey Bay.
We stopped for tea and a beer at a cute little place on the pier called Water + Leaves. They also had amazing local honeys in these giant vats. I bought some of the wildflower honey in one of those little plastic tubes - too hard to resist! 
Love how colorful these dinghies are.
After a stop at the grocery store, we made it to our final destination - Glen Oaks Big Sur. I tried to take photos, but I couldn't come close to the website's pictures, so you can check out our room here. We checked in, started a fire and enjoyed a bottle of wine and this tasty spread while listening to the crackle of the fire and the river in the background. All in all, a pretty perfect day!
