This morning we enjoyed a leisurely breakfast at the Ragged Point Inn. We walked around the grounds waiting for the restaurant to open and tried to capture a view of “Big Sur” through the wooden sculpture entitled Portal to Big Sur – fog blurred the view. Hummingbirds were darting everywhere but have been too quick for the camera.
After breakfast we cycled on Route 1 towards San Simeon and watched the Elephant seals from a spot on the side of the road, instead of the vista point 2 miles south. A new road is being constructed east of the Elephant Seal Rookery as the seals now cross the road. They think the grass is greener, I guess.
We stopped at Sebastian’s General Store at the San Simeon State Beach.
Bill was able to capture some great photos of Hearst Castle.
Bill has toured once and I have toured twice so we skipped the castle today and walked out on the wharf at San Simeon. A group of students from Paso Robles was participating in the coastal experience with docents from the Discovery Center. Sure brought back memories. Three quick whistles and the students who had been previously all over the beach were lined up ready for the next activity. (Still the teacher in me).
The ride today was like “a walk in the park” not only short mileage but flat roads with few hills.
By noon we were already in Cambria, our destination for the day. WIth great wifi, I am playing catch up.
Tomorrow, another short ride will take us to Morro Bay.
