We made it down to Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park and took a nice stroll to the waterfall lookout and then to the coastal lookout. Well worth our time as we enjoyed the breathtaking vistas!
For lunch we stopped at one of the only places to eat in the area and what a place it was. Eating lunch here and relaxing with this view was THE top moment for us during our trip. It was just so, so perfect. Rob loved the homemade lemonade, amazing macaroni and cheese, and the warm sunlight.
Take a look at what we saw on the way out. It made me chuckle.
We made a two-mile roundtrip walk to Andrew Molera State Beach. It was windy and we really wanted to head to the redwoods so it was a quick stop.
That’s when we drove to Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park. So peaceful. We both loved walking along the paths, smelling the woods, and being among the tall and beautiful trees.
After visiting the gift shop, face-timing the kidlings, and driving back to Monterey in the dark we ate dinner at Hula’s Island Grill, a funky place. Rob LOVED his fish and I LOVED my 7-layer coconut cake.
The next morning we took a little walk around the pier drinking in the sunlight and enjoying each other’s company. On the way back to SFO we drove through the woods and through part of silicon valley. We had such an amazing trip and can’t believe it took us so long to finish blogging about it!!
Thanks again to Rob’s parents for everything. We had an amazing trip and it was all thanks to their willingness to watch the kids. The kids had just as good a time with their grandparents as we had without our kids 🙂
