then we drove through golden gate park and then off on the h1 down to Felton where we found an awesome campsite in amongst the redwoods... and next to the river as well... very peaceful...
up late today and off to santa cruz... I loved santa cruz firstly very quiet hardly any traffic and so clean.. the beach was awesome sandy and clean, they have the famous boardwalk amusement park here , a typical English ride and stalls arena but as it was November so it was completely closed which was great because no people.
so after leaving santa cruz we began the Sur ... one of the best drives in the world... it goes from santa cruz to los angeles along the rugged coast line... tight corners and steep climbs and steep downhills too,, following the mountains and going across bridges and creeks .. I was amazed at the number of houses there were perched on the edge of the cliffs.. very nice houses probably worth millions but they looked awesome and miles from civilization...
we stopped at an awesome bay for a walk ,with cliffs sand and waves surfers would love.
Eventually we stopped in a lay-by to see the sun set over the water and we spent the night there... what an amazing road
