Day Trip, Night Flip

So throw that original plan of playing tourist in San Francisco out the window until tomorrow. Instead, Lyndsay and I rented a car and headed south on Highway 1 through Half Moon Bay and Santa Cruz all the way to Monterey. Here's what we found:

THE DRIVE DOWN


Pumpkins galore and more!


The Ocean? Who knew!


Still there? Just checking.


The road ahead

MONTEREY BAY FISHERMAN'S WHARF


Just in case you don't read the text...


The Boardwalk


He was ready for his closeup!


Clam chowda and a bread bowl. I asked for supersize. I guess on this coast it's "chowder" now that I think about it.


Zoltar and best best friend/mortal enemy Merlin


Tha canday! Tha canday! Sugar high!

17 MILE DRIVE


Zippy little rental car


Mini mansion.


Straight up mansion!


Spanish Bay


Spyglass Hill Golf Course


Cypress tree forest. And an arrow telling you to go off-roading.


Cypress Point Lookout


The Lone Cypress


Red & green plants, rocks, water, sky


Pescadero Point


Pebble Beach: the sign


Pebble Beach: the course

THE DRIVE NORTH


Santa Cruz Boardwalk (+1 ominous shadow)


Fresh produce (Yum strawberries!)


The sun beginneth to setteth over the oceanus pacifica

POST-TAPAS AND SANGRIA FOR DINNER WITH LYNDSAY AND HER FRIEND AND JOEY AND KELLY


Mucha handstand attempt!


Mucha handstand attempt #28: success!


Success! Time to dance!


San Fran International airport terminal, where after taking the BART to get to the hotel, I was let down by the courtesy shuttle and ended up splitting a cab with a cute girl. Sorry Adam fan club, didn't get her number.

Now for tomorrow's plan, reference the end of the post prior to this one.
