First stop was the Bixby Bridge which is the epic looking tourist photo everyone takes with the rugged coastline in the background. There was still a bit of cloud hanging around but that thankfully burnt off quite quickly. Next stop was Pfeiffer Beach which was a really pretty little cove, too cold for swimming though with a bit of a breeze keeping us out of the water. Then it was time for a coffee and treat at the Big Sur Bakery with the Big Sur Taphouse conveniently next door to sample another local brewski. We still hadn't made a lot of progress down the coast and the Henry Miller Memorial Library didn't help us get much further. The Library is actually a quaint bookshop that also hosts concerts and movies - very cool location and Van got a couple of books. Matt's book was banned in the US for a number of years and I can see why after the first couple of pages! The McWay Falls were just down the road which was also a pretty little cove that a rich family used to live next to. Would've been such a cool place to live with amazing views in all directions!
Time to get some distance under our belt before stopping at Ragged Point for some more epic views, a walk up San Simeon pier and some wine tasting at Harmony which is located in a town with 18 people! We rocked into Cayucos with enough time to pick up some smoked fish and tacos from Rudders Smokehouse and for Matt to keep up his tradition of going for a holiday waddle and swim. Awesome day driving down the coast!
