PC Trip Day 18 Monterey-San Simeon Mon 9/28

10.02.09

Hi

We awoke in Monterey to a foggy mist and cool temps on Monday morning. We took a quick drive through Monterey and then headed south on Hwy 1 to take the 17 mile drive through Pebble Beach and then on to Carmel where we stopped for lunch and a walking tour. After lunch we headed south through some of the most spectacular scenery on the west coast in Big Sur and then on to San Simeon. Unfortunately it remained cloudy all day.

 The lodge at Pebble Beach was built in 1919 and the golf course is home to many golf tournaments. I walked on the same turf as Tiger Woods.
