Asilomar is a well kept secret.............we at first couldnt make out what it was as there seems to be some groups of folk on courses there...........but its is super special place to stay if you want to try something slightly diferent and refreshing reasonable price wise . the breakfast is in a huge lodge and well so large you have everyhting on offer.............the surrounds are architecturally intersesting and it worth spending an hour on the free audia tour and self guide yourself around the buidlings and see the place come alive all those years ago when it was first built. We are on a world tour and this was just 4 days at Asilomar but it will remains special in my memory as the best place we stayed along the californian coast , no not for luxury, but good value and much better value than a normal motel and for the same price.............im enlgish and i cant say how sweet this place is, with sweet natured people, and away from the hsutle and bustle of the real world.

... town, bit of a hike, but worth seeing for the houses. They were amazing. Everyone was different. Some serious money there. The town had lots of shops, mostly independent which was nice. Had some coffee and took it easy.
Finished off the 17 mile tour and drove along the coast of Pacific Grove, that's where we were staying. Much more chilled and less busy than Carmel and Monetary, ...
... re overseen on an official tour, which requires reservations in advance and costs 7 bucks a person, plus 10 dollars admission. We asked the park ranger at the gate if California had a 5 day pass we could buy to get in the parks like in Oregon. The woman was very short and abrupt. She said "NO!". She said we could buy the 200 dollar season pass if we wanted. I find it disconcerting that the state employees we encountered at the prison ...
The next day it took a while to get going, but eventually we were fed, showered and off to Paso Robles to pick up supplies for camping with before starting our journey up the Pacific Coast Highway. We started it at the South and made our way up North. Most of the afternoon we just drove and took in the amazing scenery. Worryingly we found that every camp ground we drove past seemed to be full. However I had done some research, and had a free camp ...
After a very busy third week, meeting numerous fascinating people doing incredibly fascinating things, I finally had to leave this friday afternoon to go back to UCLA. It is raining and it is Friday traffic, but I mad it to my first stop at Ansilomar State Park in Monterey. A beautiful place, but unfortunately I arrive after sunset, and maybe tomorrow morning if it doesn't rain too much I will be able to go for a walk on the ...
After taking many pictures at many of the Vista points including my own pullout to get a photo of the great Bixby Bridge, I decided to drive past the State Parks coming into Carmel, and drown myself in music to get pumped up for my next adventure. Walking along the beach on Ocean Ave was so much fun but the wind started picking up so i made the most of my time and hopped back in the warm car. Awaiting a call from a good friend, i tried buying my ...
