I wanted to stop to camp in Big Sur for a night on my way up to San Francisco, but all of the campgrounds I drove by were full. That shouldn't be a surprise -- it's a weekend in mid-May with awesome weather!
It's crazy to think I reached my official destination today, 50 days after I packed up my stuff and left Washington, DC.
That's 12 days of driving, and lots of exploring.
I'm doing a recap of my drive in an Addendum soon -- miles driven, cities slept in, and the cost of my trip in gas.
Had to share some more photos of the drive up CA-1.
I wasn't really familiar with the Bixby Bridge, but damn if I'm not now! It's beautiful! I'd love to see it in some fog or something :)
It just so happened that I drove up to it right at sunset, so that was handy. It was INCREDIBLY windy on a few of those overlook points, though. Like, shaking my parked car and literally blowing me off my feet. Crazy!
I arrived at my friend Merideth's house in San Francisco late Saturday night. She and her husband just moved here from Washington, DC, where we hung out constantly, about six weeks ago, so it was weird and awesome to see her here on the other coast!
