So, between FF miles and a $280 roundtrip fare, we're going out for some California warmth over February vacation. Road Trip!
We'll begin in San Francisco, and work our way down the coast to LA. I'm happy just to stare at the Pacific, enjoy not freezing my feet off, and eat some crab and halfway decent Mexican food. We've taken the boys to San Francisco before, but they've never been south. The last time Larry and I did the coast road was at least 20 years ago, so we're overdue. Not much SlowTravel, more an oldfashioned road trip. A basic itinerary at this point:
Saturday: Fly into SF Saturday night, Overnight near the airport.
Sunday: Meet J and C for lunch somewhere--Pescadaro or Santa Cruz; Point Lobos State Reserve; overnight in Carmel.
Monday: Carmel, Big Sur, drive to Cambria. Overnight Cambria
Tuesday: San Simeon, Elephant Seals park, Monarch butterfly reserve. Overnight Cambria.
Wednesday: Paso Robles in am; drive to Santa Monica after lunch. Overnight Santa Monica.
Thursday: LA: wishlist includes Universal studios, Getty Museum, Venice Beach, Tar Pits, Disney? Overnight Santa Monica.
Friday: LA. Overnight Santa Monica.
