The Coast

Hello there! I apologize for being MIA for almost 3 months.  I've been busy with life in general.  August is my favorite month not only because it's my birthmonth but I feel like August is my New Year.  I try to do fun things around this time to celebrate my life.

Last week, I drove up to Northern California to visit my high-school friends.  I took the Pacific Coast and boy IT WAS BREATHTAKING!  I almost stopped every Vista Points to take pictures and I arrived to my destination 10 hours later.  Everyone told me I was crazy and that it would be cheaper and faster to fly.  My mind was set and I didn't mind driving at all.  Driving through the coast was on my Bucket List.  Now I can scratch that off of my list.  I stopped at Nepenthe in Big Sur for lunch.  It was too crowded for a Monday.  A former co-worker had mentioned about this place years ago and I couldn't agree more.  It was quite a scenery and I couldn't ask for a better weather.

Even though I drove by myself, I wasn't bored at all.  I was very comfortable with my own company.  My mom was worried about me driving alone but I felt confident and safe driving up as there were CHPs,  gas stations and restaurants along the coast.

I must say, this trip has been the best unplanned trip ever.
