Northern California Vacation!
I recently went on an amazing trip with my boyfriend Eric to northern California. We started out flying into Oakland, renting a car, and driving down the coastline. We stayed the night in a quaint little beach town called Carmel that was nothing short of any village cut right from a Disney movie, little cottages everywhere with the most beautiful gardens!
We then took off and made our way to Big Sur which was absolutely stunning. There we visited Pfieffer Beach and Point Lobos State Park, the views were all stunning and it was one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen.
We then drove back up north where we spent two nights in San Francisco, taking a day trip to Muir Woods in the midst of giant Red Wood trees and breaking for lunch in the beautiful coast town of Sausalito.
Stopping for a pick amongst the famed 17 Mile Drive that cruises around Pebble Beach.
