We had collected our hire car and driven a section of Highway 1 from San Fran to Santa Cruz before heading inland. The coastal section was spectacular, but would have been more magnificent had the sun been shining. As it was, it was a bit of a gray day. The surfers sure looked cold in the crashing waves. Along the way, we saw many crops growing in the fields, but I was most enthralled by the extensive orchards of pistachios. I would ...
... for camping, now America gets on my tits sometimes, it sign posts you off the road to something, you follow that sign, then it decides, **** you, you're on your own now, now you have to guess.

... have had 6lanes going each way. So far we haven't encountered too much traffic.
Finding our way around has been an experience too. The GPS tells us to turn at the last possible moment. I have taken to reading it and constantly scouring the signs to make sure we don' t miss the turn offs. That bit has been ok but finding our way around town has been a little tricky. We have circled a couple ...
