As if Glass Beach, tide pools, headland hikes, amazing sunsets, rocky coastlines, ocean views, and the redwood forest were not enough reasons to go on your own Grand Tour of California... there are also towns to explore.
Houses to look at, garden techniques to copy, coffee shops to try, and yarn to be touched. We will have to go back to do justice to Santa Cruz, Castroville, Pacific Grove, Carmel, and Cambria. I am a firm believer in leaving some things undone in order to have a reason to visit again. We are going to get one of those cars that drives itself on the next trip. With a glass top and windows on all sides. Kind of like a popemobile, but with comfy seats and good cup holders.
And thus concludes the posting of stories and photographs from The Grand Tour of California - Part I. Thanks for coming along for the ride.
