Anyway, we did the drive alright, but low and behold we got to Monterey and there was this scenic area called 17 mile drive. Now, they are big on gated estates here, you know to keep out the riff raff, and the 17 mile drive was kind of like a preservation area along the coast, that contained various gated estates, but also four different world class golf courses, Del Monte, Spyglass Hill, The Links at Spanish Bay and Pebble Beach Links. Now for those troglodites that don't know (ha, like me), Pebble Beach Links is where the US Golf Masters was played this year, 2010
The drive further down the coast to Big Sur was amazing, the scenery is breathtaking. Peter just wanted to enjoy the drive, he likes driving it is one of his favourite past times. Big Sur is not one particular place but the region along the coast where the Santa Lucia mountains rise abruptly out of the ocean creating amazing coastal scenery.
We enjoyed the drive then headed back to San Francisco to rest, before heading to Lake Tahoe the next day.
