Down the Coast

.
I had a truly spectacular day
driving south down Highway one.

The weather was perfect.

I decided
that I would take
every single coastal access road.

It made for a long,
but oh so glorious trip.

So, here,
in no particular order,
are my favorites from the drive south.

There were flowers.


Beaches.


Fog,
rolling into valleys.
filled with water lilies.


Incredible coastline vistas.


Swaying blooms against blue skies.


Even more incredible vistas.


And one more,
I just had to include this one.


It was a perfect day . . .

Reminding me,
once again,
that

Love those coastal drives...after leaving LA from working an AARP conference at LACC, we headed west to head north on 101 up to Walnut Creek...love...love...love the coastal drives!

You're making me hungry for driving the Pacific Coast again, and taking more time while we do it. Your coastal shots are superb! Thanks for sharing.

Love those great photos, Kate! We just love Oregon. If we can't make it down to visit you guys, you should come up and visit us! We're getting power put in place for Therapy, and we would be happy to share some with you. AND, we won't make you do any work on cleaning out our "stuff". Think about it. It's warm and dry here during the winter...as long as you stay inside!

Ah, the beautiful Pacific coast. I grew up on it and it will always have a special place in my heart.
