We had planned to drive down the scenic Highway 1 which goes along the coast but unfortunately our stupid satnav lady took us on Highway 101 which although is probably a quicker route, it's basically like the M1 but with a lot more fast food restaurants along it.
It took us a couple of hours to get to Carmel and we headed to Point Lobos - a state reserve with lots of hiking trails along the coast and great views
Ventured into the town centre for dinner tonight to a restaurant recommended by our host. What a lovely town - really picturesque with lots of cafes, restaurants and boutiques all set within a forest. We are really surprised by how cold it is at night, we wore fleeces to dinner and considering we are in California, the weather so far has been much chillier than back home.
