We headed north on Hwy 101 toward Monterey, stopping at Yanks RV resort in Greenfield.
Pretty scenery as we pass through Pismo Beach!
Our RV could only do 35mph over the pass up ahead in a steep ascent to 1532′ above sea level:
We saw tons of grape vineyards!
Really pretty backdrop! The resort is pretty new and really well landscaped.
The next day we went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, which was awesome!
We had to park quite a ways down the road, but there is a path along the ocean that was beautiful and we got to see Harbor Seals climbing up onto the beach! Note the sweatshirts the kids have on… Kind of cool out!
What made the Monterey Bay Aquarium so amazing was that sheer size of the tanks. One of them was over 1,000,000 gallons!
Hey, those aren’t real barnacles!
The next day we drove to Big Sur to see the giant redwoods along the coast, but due to the wildfires in the area we weren’t able to get into the Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park.
We saw lots of closed roads with firemen and each of the entrances. What you see in these photos is fog, except where it is brown colored in the video.
Fire on the mountain (sorry for the power lines in the shot):
Creepy…narrow Hwy 1 up high in the fog!
Can’t imagine driving our 37′ RV + tow car around some of these tight turns. No room for error!
We then stopped by Point Lobos State Park, which is on the ocean side of the highway. Really awesome views of the rocky shoreline!
We got to see harbor seals and sea lions lying on the rocks (so lazy!) and sea otters playing in the water (our favorite).
Taking it easy this week! Love working outside!
The kids love going to the pool at the RV resort. They are trying out their lifejackets today.
