In August 2011 we drove down the Pacific Coast Highway from San Francisco to Los Angeles. The drive was absolutely beautiful. We first spent some time in Marin County with family and a day in San Francisco. This was Sam's first trip to San Francisco but it made a good impression since we have been back several times since then. After our time in San Francisco we took our time down the coast and made stops in Santa Cruz, Monterey, Big Sur, Santa Barbara and many other picturesque viewpoints. We ended in Los Angeles and visited Sam's brother for a few days. A few things we learned on this road trip:
1. Take your time.
2. Always stop to take the picture.
3. Watch the elephant seals.
4. Once again, always pack a beanie.
