    Where The Livin'z Easy

    November 2, 2016 in the United States

    I quickly found better weather just south of Cupertino. Cupertino was gorgeous, but the further south I went, there were fewer clouds and it was much warmer at night. I continued to follow route 1 south with the ocean to my right and mountains to my left. I soon came to Big Sur state park. Unfortunately a recent fire had kept all the campgrounds in the park closed. Luckily there are a bunch of campgrounds along the way. I travel a few more miles south and come to Limekiln state park, which consists of about 15 maybe 20 sites. My site put me right next to a stream in the shade of a few redwoods and steep cliffs on either side. The steam flowed straight in to the ocean which was a few hundred feet away. On the way to a modestly sized yet beautiful beach I crossed under route 1, which was high overhead. The bridge was like a giant doorway between the camping area and the beach and ocean. The beach was walled in on both sides by step cliffs. it almost felt like I was in an auditorium and the sky and ocean was on stage.

    I arrived fairly early in the afternoon and still had an hour or so to bask in the sun as it set over the water. This was the first sunset on the west coast I've had that's felt warm while wearing shorts and a tee shirt. I got to put my feet in warm beach sand one more time this year, and it felt great!

    Pictures: California Central coast. The left hand wall at the Pacific ocean theater. A cool rock. A gorgeous sunset. More cool rocks.

    More Big Sur Views

    October 30, 2015 in the United States

    There was a new and amazing view around every corner and at the crest of every hill on highway 1 through the Big Sur area. The historic concrete bridges and tunnels were beautiul in their own right as well. Before we climbed up and away from the coast, we tried to finally get in a swim in California (we had taken a quick dip in the chilly Pacific Ocean in Oregon, but not yet in California). The beautiful beach at Limekiln State Park was inviting, but as with other parts of the coast we found the waves to be a bit scary, so settled for a quick splash in the shallows to cool us off before the long hot climb.Read more

    Camping on the Big Sur Coast

    November 11, 2015 in the United States

    No other bikers that night so I found a guy car camping alone. Ended up spend all night with Steve, we shared a few beers, a loaf of banana bread and chatted about life.

    Stopping for coffee with a surprise

    April 10 in the United States

    After a picnic lunch, I became super sleepy and was dosing off all the time, missing the beautiful views. So after we tried having a short nap that didn't really help we mage the sensible decision and stopped for coffee. It made us grateful that we brought a picnic - this place had small pastries for 9-10 dollars each, we didn't even dare to look at other food prices... On the way back to the car, I want up to a tree to look at its unusual flowers and then to my amazement a hummingbird flew up to it. In my excitement all I could do was keep shouting, "look Seamus, a kolibri" to which he kept asking what a kolibri was, and I just kept saying, a kolibri, a kolibri! Finally he spotted the bird too, so he informed me it's name was a hummingbird. It was really incredible to me to see one just hanging out in front of a bar. In general there seems to be much more wildlife about, and lots of them are pretty and exciting and new for us. Almost every minute you can spot a hawk circling around the sky as well, they are also beautiful.Read more
