Very nice campground full of grass, seawaves rocking the cliff are heard during night.
Firewood is for sale. Flushing toilets present. Pay the fee ($20 in 2014) into the box right after checking-in (max 30 minutes).

We were pretty excited about today as we were joining the 4 Grahams to go to a fancy restaurantin Big Sur where they have lots of Whales!!
The morning started as normal...however Melissa made biscuits and gravy (savory buttery scones with a pale sausage gravy for the Brits) so we went over early to have some and it tasted so good!!!

... thru small-town America, Watsonville and quaint little road side stalls selling pie and coffee...and Jesus.H.Christ rub my eyes twice I can't believe it, 7 avocados for a dollar!
We chatted about the July 4/5 celebrations, and the underlying panic of the hoi polloi. In the land of milk and honey where everyone (at least in theory) can be President or Govonator, where whatever you want is available yesterday, twice with eggs on top, a national day ...

Stopped off at Mcway falls where Julie decided to go swimming in the falls - which was an adventure for us to get too! We soon went passed ...
... dumped our bags and headed to the bar to watch the sun finally set as we drank a few beers reminiscing on the days adventures.
Going to bed we could still hear the sea lions at the shore and a few car still travelling along the coastal highway, it was lovely to nod off to. The trips to the loo in the night didn't take too long, torch in hand, and helped by the fact it was not cold and raining as it usually is at home on a camping trip!
