    Empezamos otro dia a pleno sol, con un super desayuno en el hotel. Justo desde ahi comienza la ruta de cornisa siguiendo la costa.

    Recorriendo ese camino encontramos muchos lugares increibles para sacar fotos. Paramos en todos los que nos gustaron. Eran uno mas lindo que el otro.Read more

    A surprise at McWay Falls

    September 17, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    We left Monterey to head towards Pismo Beach in order to camp 1 night. We didn’t want to drive the 6-7 hours to LA, so we thought it would be a good idea to split the journey into two parts.

    Lisa and Judith drove towards Pismo Beach really early. Chris, Theo and I packed up the rest of the stuff from our Airbnb and headed down the highway along the coast a few hours after them. The views of the coast reminded me very much of home (New Zealand, not Bremen... although I wish Bremen had water that blue). Theo slept for the first half of our 3 hour trip and we stopped by McWay Falls to check out the view and to eat our packed lunches.

    First we headed down a little tunnel to get to the waterfall lookout, but we couldn’t go the whole way because the end part of the lookout was off-limits. I wasn’t disappointed, however, because the sun was shining, Theo was in a good mood and the different colors of the ocean were like something out of a postcard.

    At the back of the car park area, there was a secluded area, which used to be for picnicking, with a little stream running alongside it. It was quiet, shaded and we had the whole place to ourselves.

    Theo and I ate our sandwiches happily and then Chris crouched infront of me, with Theo in between us (always), and proposed. I cried before be could finish was he was saying. Theo handed him a slice of cheese midway through his speech and I didn’t even get to take the ring out of the box myself before Theo had it in his chubby fingers and Chris asked him to put it on me. It was a wonderful moment that I’m so glad we were able to have, just the three of us. Yet another thing to enjoy about our California trip!!

    We ended our day camping at Pismo Beach. Our campsite was great, we spent the rest of our afternoon enjoying the peace so easily found in nature and fell asleep to the sound of the ocean. Such a wonderful, relaxing, joyful day for our family 💕

    Camino a SF: cascada McWay

    February 18, 2020 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    Disfrutamos todo el camino entre el oceano, los bosques y las montañas. El paisaje es herrmoso, y ademas te conecta con la naturaleza.

    Y uno de los lugares mas lindos que conocimos fue una cascada medio escondida que cae directamente al mar. Hermoso lugar!Read more
