Today was one of those rare days when we didn’t have anything planned. We just drove south, and then we kept driving…all the way to Big Sur. It had seemed too far until we were in the car and just needed to see what was a little further down the road.
Despite all the traffic on the one lane road near the impressive Bixby Creek Bridge, the beaches were surprisingly quiet.
We wandered through the trails around the beaches in Carmel until it was nearly dusk. It felt like an afternoon vacation and a much needed pause.
