Big Sur Coastline in California

This is a picture I took some years ago along the Big Sur coastline of Central California. The rugged cliffs and multicolored blues of the water greatly appealed to me. It was a cool, very windy day and the fog was slowly coming in. If you have never driven Highway 1 along the California coast, you have missed a rare treat. The road is narrow (just two lanes) and very winding, but well worth the trip. The scenery is outstanding and you may catch a glimpse of whales, sea otters, or elephant seals if you're lucky.

Beautiful picture. It's been more than 30 years since I took the coastal drive.

That's a great pic - I've been dying to get up the coast, just haven't had the chance yet.

What a lovely story. Thank you for sharing it with us. Your penny rug is beautiful on its own, but the feelings behind it make it even more so.


Hello Arline, Your beading is wonderful. You are a very creative beader. I also have drove along the Oregon and California Hey. 1 coast line. Truly beautiful. Thanks for visiting my blog and the nice comment about my Faith Hope and Love Penny rug. Much appreciated. Hugs Judy

Ahh yes Arline -- we've done that trip twice.
If only I could win the lottery and foreclose on a house there... then I could move there !
