Went down the Big Sur coast a little to Pfeiffer beach, which was a beautiful and rugged beach hidden away of the main track. Kids messed about in some pools, which on the way out we saw a couple of small but poisonous water snakes!). Nikki fell asleep in the overcast conditions and later had comedy sunburn. Went for late lunch / early dinner at Nepenthe, on top of the cliffs which has a view to die for and one of the most spectacular restaurants we have ever been to. 

Back to Monterrey for our last night at Sea Otter House and then next day drove all the way down the beautiful Route 1 along the coast through the Big Sur to Santa Barbara. It is a spectacular winding road right along the cliff tops, but unfortunately it was mostly misty along the way from the sea mist. Needed to be in a convertible really rather than Rusty. As Nikki slept most of the way(not quite true) and the kids played on DS's, its left to me to write this entry ! 
We did see more sea otters and elephant seals basking on the beaches.
