Back Home Again

We are back home again, after a 5 day trip to San Francisco (SFO) by car. We left early Thursday morning and drove up the coast to Monterey (if you have not been along Route 1 to Big Sur, it is truly an amazing trip with incredible views).
We stayed over night there with my cousin, then arrived in SFO mid afternoon on Friday. Took in a number of sites including Telegraph Hill and Coit Tower, some great restaurants (of which SFO excels - Millenium and Frascati for dinner, Herbivore and Canteen for breakfast), then drove on Sunday south to wine country at Paso Robles (several hours north east of LA) where we stopped at J. Lohr and Tobin James (our favorite). About 1200 miles all total. Gas topped out at $4.59 for premium along the Big Sur coast - we are lucky here!!

Making a trip such as this made me realize, even more so, how incredible California is in terms of the diversity of geography, coastal views (the picture was taken south of Big Sur), towns, weather, people, and the agricultural offerings.
