We drove the Pacific Coast Hwy to Big Sur today. I was too carsick to keep my eyes open on the way there (winding climbing roads combined with a hangover) but it was a magnificent view of the ocean, mountains, and rocks on the way home. Very soothing and poetic. At Big Sur we hiked to this gorge in the pictures. We had to climb over a lot of slippery rocks to get there! It was so rejuvenating to jump in the water! I could only swim for about 30 seconds because it was sooooooooooooooo cold. I will hopefully never complain about Hamlin Lake again when we go skiing! All the water here in Cali is super cold. DO NOT be fooled by the California myth. It is not that warm here!
