Sep 17: Monterey to Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park (47.4 miles)

Today is a ride from Monterey to Carmel along the famous 17 Mile Drive, then on Hwy 1 to Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park.

If you felt cheated by the lack of photos in yesterday’s blog, don’t worry because I went overboard today! The coast views were spectacular!

In Monterey harbor I saw the pelicans and seals sharing rocks

First stop was a peek at the place where Liz and I were married some 26 years ago, and it is time for another visit!

I tried to capture the clarity of the ocean waters.

Looking North back at the Bixby Creek Bridge and coastline

Another gorgeous beach

I arrived at Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park in time for lunch. The Hiker-Biker site here is Big and the showers are hot. I will sleep well tonight! Tomorrow starts with a big hill.
