Weekend getaway to the Big Sur coast

Only about 70 miles south of Santa Cruz where we live, but we had never stayed in Big Sur before. I have driven through many times over the years, but we thought it would be a good idea to spend a little more time to enjoy this beautiful coastline of central California!

There is no town of Big Sur, it is just a 90-mile section of Monterey county encompassing some of the most beautiful coastline, cliffs, beaches, and two rivers (Big Sur and Little Sur), even a waterfall that flows directly onto a beach!

We took our time driving and stopping and arrived at the Ventana Inn just before sunset, after checking in, we sat outside to enjoy the daily wine and cheese reception.
