We headed out from Morro Bay and jumped back on to 1 N. We drove through some different small towns on our way to Big Sur. They were pretty neat. There wasn't much to do in them besides drive down main street to check out the little shops. We contemplating going to Hearst Castle, which was the home of William Randolph Hearst. Some of you might know him from this awesome quote "peddling the papers of Joseph Pulitzer, William Randolph Hearst, and other giants of the newspaper world." At least I know my sisters will enjoy that line. The tour of the castle cost like $25 per person so we decided to skip it. Jared tried to get a picture as we drove by. It is horrible, but I will post it anyway. Then you guys can see it the way we did.
We continued on our way on 1 N to drive the Big Sur Coast Highway
So we ended up just making this a big day of driving. We did stop at some good turnouts on the coastal drive for some nice sights. We decided to stay in Monterey so we would be close for our stuff tomorrow.
