Big Sur isn't actually a place, it's a stretch of coastline along Highway 1, it means 'Big South'. The picturesque scenery reminded me a little of our Great Ocean Road, but call me biased, Australia will always be better!! Ha ha. 

There's many campgrounds and state parks here where people come to camp for the so called summer! It was waaaay to cold here still. But we enjoyed the drive, especially James with the winding roads. Apart of the road had just re-opened after 3 weeks due to a rockslide, so we were lucky to get through. It only took us the day to drive Big Sur as we weren't staying overnight and only stopped for lunch.

We made it up to a small town called Monterey Bay which was the end of big sur and stayed over night, where we ate the best Clam Chowder for dinner!! They're huge on their clam chowder over here, which is like a thick white creamy soup with clams in it of course! It's really yummy!
