our trip — part two — the coast

Posted on June 2, 2007. Filed under: The boy(s), Travelling |

After our first few days in San Francisco, with our rental car secured, Brian and I left the city and headed for the coast. We travelled down windy highway 1 where the cliffs gave way to the ocean and it was beautiful.

A few hours in we stopped at Big Sur and went into a little artsy store where Brian found a gorgeous painting.  Back in the car a few minutes later we spotted a sign for The Henry Miller Memorial Library. I didn’t know that Henry Miller had lived in Big Sur but the library was this cool little bookstore and outside was a stage with couches for concerts. It was right up my alley. We looked around inside for a bit and of course I couldn’t leave without buying a copy of Tropic of Cancer. We stopped in San Simeon for the night in a Motel 6 after having a lovely dinner overlooking the ocean. Our waitress actually apologized to us, when she brought the bill, for George Bush.

The next morning we stopped in a little down called Cambria and went into some galleries and did some shopping then it was on our way through Santa Barbara — we stopped just outside of the city for lunch and some important hat shopping then went through L.A. (we didn’t stop at all) and we made it to San Diego in the early evening where we stopped again for a couple of days.

The Henry Miller Museum is where I spent the morning of my 30th birthday. We drove into Big Sur, “camped,” and then drove on to San Simeon to see the Hearst castle, another highlight of our trip down the California coast. One of my favourite trips ever, loved San Francisco too.
