img_2370Starting Point: Sunset State Beach, Santa Cruz, CA

Miles: 383
Drive Time: 8.5 hours
Hours listened to The Lord of the Rings audiobook: 3 hours, 50 minutes (Finished The Fellowship of the Ring!)

A morning treasure hunt on the beach

 

First stop: Monterey Bay Aquarium.

We spent all of the morning exploring the aquarium. We saw three feedings, penguins, open sea, and kelp forest, and met a very curious octopus.

Big Sur

 

Second Stop: Bixby Canyon Bridge.

This part of the drive was incredible, and if we stopped at every lookout or vista point, we would have never made it to Los Angeles.

Third Stop: Elephant Seal brooding grounds

These guys were so loud and funny, Megan couldn’t stop laughing

Final Stop: Anaheim, CA

We got into our hotel very late but it was worth the excellent drive. Tomorrow: Disneyland.
