          We got lucky as the Big sur half marathon was in town. We got a good rate and overall a good experience. We did have some dog hair in our hotel room, I am not the biggest fan of the hotel allowing dogs. The cookies were yummy though!

          Two days in Avalon

          A travel blog entry by verity.huntley on Aug 29, 2016

          The island is very hilly, so there is only so much of Avalon that you can explore on foot. That said a very popular way of getting around the island is by golf buggy and these are easy to hire. It's a very outdoorsy place, with many water sports on offer and snorkeling. There are shops and companies that offer equipment hire and tours. …

          A travel blog entry by jalen on Nov 11, 2016

          Last minute we decided to go to Monterey for the night. Mom ran 14 miles along the Monterey coast trail while Dad and I visited the Aquarium. I only wanted to visit a few exhibits because I was too excited to go to the hotel! Check in took a while but after we got in, we had to quickly get ready for dinner after mom took a shower. It was a nice …

          ... we looked out to sea at the mass of bird life thronging about. There were literally thousands of birds flying low over the water, in a sort of endless fly past.

          Morro Bay was our first stop to see the sea otters, who were there, floating about on their backs in the water close by. They seemed pretty unfazed by the people kayaking around them.

          Knowing that there are not many gas stations on the Big Sur, we stopped in Cambria to fill up.
          This was a small ...

          ... not a beach girl, but I'm all about awe and majesty, and the coast of CA, with the Pacific pounding is very much both. It was a very cool and cloudy day, so getting out of the car literally took my breath away, LOL, but we got some great views.

          As I said, I'm not a beach girl, and Santa Cruz was the stereotypical beach, but we walked a bit. I had my only B A D meal of the trip, what was supposed to be a Veggie Taco and was ...
