First Half

We officially want to move here. Seriously.

The trip started off great--I won't bore you with (lots of) words, just a barrage of photos!

Day One/Two: Phoenix & Prescott, AZ; Paso Robles, CA
At the airport, being thankful for "flying meds" otherwise Derek would have been going all by his lonesome.

Cacti! And the Schippers! At In-n-Out
 Day Three: Monterey, Carmel/Carmel Mission, 17 Mile Drive, Big Sur

17 Mile Drive, Carmel/Monterey

They don't have these back home...and by the way, we 100% slept through the St. Patrick's Day earthquake in LA. Oops.

Mission at Carmel

Again, the mission.

Our sweet ride...2014 Dodge Charger. Infer whatever level of sarcasm you want. You'd probably be right.

Awesome cabin in Big Sur
 Stayed here, by the way. All different size rooms and cabins and definitely recommend!
McWay Falls, Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park

The only time we asked a stranger to take our picture...

Day Four: Hwy 1 through Big Sur, Jade Cove Beach, San Simeon, Hearst Castle, Piedras Blancas Seal Rookery, and Cayucos. Whew!
On the road through Big Sur

Baby seals...awwww. (They really are alive, even though they don't look it.)
