Day one of the road trip to San Francisco started as a cloudy day with a slight threat of rain as we reached Santa Barbara.

One of the scenic rest stops on the way to Solvang

The city of Solvang is like stepping into a Dutch country. You wouldn’t guess that you were still in California as you drove into this quaint little town.

On the way to Big Sur is Morro Bay. Just off the coast of this town is one of the seven sisters, a volcanic rock that used to be part of a chain of volcanic islands off this coast.

Before taking the Big Sur portion of our trip we decided to stop for the night. The drive up the coast was a little windy.
