Motel was very reasonably priced and great location. Walking distance to the pier and boardwalk. Very dated motel and breakfast was cellophane wrapped parties with Tea/coffee no milk just powdered creamer. Surely a toaster and some bread and spreads couldn't be that expensive. Also, no aircon in room but did bring a fan up to us which was great.

So why do it......aside from the challenge. The sense of achievement ...
Today we drove from Atascadero to Monterey along the Pacific Coast Highway. We stopped just north of San Simeon to see the elephant seals which were shrouded in fog. Then we stopped at Ragged Point to see the views. On the way out to the point you couldn't see the ocean but in the short time it took to return the fog had mostly cleared. Next we made our way to Big Sur for lunch at Nepenthe. The weather was perfect and we sat outside ...
