... earliest 1 hour train at 11:00 and still make it to the hotel by 4:00. Besides, since the train didn't leave until 11:00, and it was only 10 miles from the hotel, we could sleep in late. We had a plan!

... they’re Mario Andrete. Once we got off of that craziness and were able to breathe again, the coast was nothing but ours - BIG SUR HERE WE COME ! Along the way we saw a sign that said “Pebble Beach” - one of the things my dad recommended we check out. As we make a gradual right turn down a slight slope, we hit some toll booths - you jokin’? It costs money just to breathe the air down here and walk the sacred grounds of Pebble Beach?! As if we were going ...
