On Wednesday morning we climbed immediately leaving Monterey on our way to BIg Sur.
We spent the day cycling on Route 1 with glorious views out over the cliffs, bridges that I wanted to get across quickly, hills to climb, headwinds, and curves.
We cycled past the Point Sur lighthouse, built in 1887 and turned over to the State Park system in 2004, while still being an active Coast Guard Light Station.
As we cycled over the bridge (there were many)
and then on up to Hurricane Point, the fog was still lingering on the upper part of the mountains to the east.
Most of the photos reflect the lack of sunshine today. One of the rocky coves seemed to be especially intriguing to motorists and their cameras. So we stopped to take a look. What originally looked like white rocks
turned out to be seals snoozing on the rocks. Bill’s zoom on the camera is fantastic.
We stopped for the afternoon at the Riverside Campground and Cabins and have an old cabin in the redwoods about two miles north of Big Sur. We walked through the woods to a pub for dinner and will be early to bed for the long and many-hilled ride tomorrow to Ragged Point.
