|We stayed a couple of nights in Carmel-By-The-Sea (yes that's it's official name). It's a fancy little town in California with more art galleries than you can shake a stick at.|
|We watched the sunset on the beach each evening with a glass of wine : )|
|In true Portland style we brought bikes!|
In Carmel we did the famous 17 mile drive and got to see some pretty spectacular coastline views.
|The 17 mile drive wraps around Pebble Beach golf course whose official trademark is the Lone Cypress.|
|On our way south to Pismo Beach (our next stop) we drove down highway 1.|
The seemingly never ending twists and turns right next to huge cliffs leaves me never wanting to do that again. The views were pretty amazing though.
|At a look out along hwy 1|
|We made it to Pismo Beach alive! We spent another few days here bumming around on the beach and stuffing ourselves with fried seafood : )|
|I'm such a sucker for fish and chips!|
|One day we rode our bikes to the next beach town to do a little wine tasting|
|It was a much needed kid free vacation, we had a blast but we are glad to be back with our stinky little boys : )|
