    ... down as we passed Carmel and with the wind behind and stunning scenery, it was a pleasant enough ride. We stopped for a picturesque lunch at Point Lobos State Park, famous for its ancient cypress trees, some of which hang about precariously on the rocks. There were some toughish climbs as we headed towards the small centre that is given the name Big Sur and our evening's accommodation. We tried one campsite but they wanted $45, so we continued ...

    ... and it's another tick on the list.

    The entire coastal road was nothing short of spectacular and we finished off the drive with a short break on Sand Dollar Beach.

    We didn’t have any accommodation booked so we went on the hunt for somewhere to stay. All the rooms on were coming up so expensive so we stopped in the town of San Simeon but the cheapest was $179! We then pulled off at the next town ...

    ... after our flight from Vegas was delayed, so we arrived at about 10pm both feeling pretty shattered and also extremely hungry as we'd not eaten since midday! We stayed in Motel 6, a chain of budget motels across America, which was perfect for us. The staff at the motel looked a little surprised when we asked at 10pm where we could go for dinner, saying we better hurry as this is only a small town and most places close at 11. So we walked down to the one restaurant - Rusty's ...

    Left Adobe Inn at 9am after a pretty bad continental breakfast and TomTom took us straight to all the bad hills as usual. Took around an hour with lots of walking to find route one, not a good start. Almost immediately to the 17 mile drive road to Carmel, it's a $10 dollar toll road but the guy didn't charge us! It's really beautiful with wonderful houses, the waves were pretty huge too. Great empty beach with lots of walkers, didn't see Clint ...
