... Big Sur south to north. It is far better driving it in the other direction. Firstly the sun is behind you, secondly, you see FAR more of the ocean. However.
We did stop now and again to see if those rocks were whales or just rocks pretending to be whales and usually it was the latter. A little like the game all those rocks and tree stumps play in Yosemite pretending to be bears! After a while, they all look like bears, or whales... and one feels more and more stupid.

I think every town we stumbled upon had this feel, reminded me a little of Cornwall although on a much grander scale.
