Let's Go On A Roadtrip California's Pacific Coast Highway 1

Let's take a trip back in time to Mother's Day weekend. The family took me to my favorite little beach town Santa Cruz California. Saturday's weather was perfect Cali sunshine to go on rides, stroll the beach, and indulge in treats for our sweet tooth. The next day I woke up with the wild idea to do something I've been wanting to do as a teen...... cruise Pacific Coast Highway 1.  Turns out the tribe agreed this would be a fine way to spend a Sunday and off we drove. Come along on this journey and enjoy some of California's Gold down Coastal Highway 1. I was channeling my inner Huell Howser right there, now ain't that amazing!

The start off point of this trip is from West Cliff  Drive Santa Cruz, California. I was thrilled to finally snap a photo of the famous "To Honor Surfers Monument", which brings in mind to honor Jack O'Niell the pioneer of the wetsuit and the O'Niell surf brand who recently passed away on Friday.  West Cliff drive loops around with scenic coast line to the  left and majestic coastal homes to the right. 

 How is that for some ocean front homes! I love the diversity in the structures of these homes and the natural materials used.

So where does this road lead to? You will have to wait and see in my next installment of the roadtrip. Here's a hint it involves fruit.

  2. Just heard about Jack O'Neill yesterday. What an awesome man. My family has surfed the waters in this area a zillion times. Yes, these homes are fabulous. Can't wait to see the next phase of your road trip, Holly.

  3. I really love this since it turned out when I was in California that my fear of heights made it almost impossible to enjoy that drive - glad you'll be able to show me what I missed!!

  4. I love the houses--the colors and shapes fun. And I'm always taken by the way you document your trips.

  5. That stone house is so gorgeous! I love trip photos - makes me want to go and play in the summer sun! Thank you so much for sharing.

  6. Wow! I love all of those homes and as always your photos are lovely! I can't wait to see the next adventure!

  7. The houses are stunning! So unique, so beautiful! What a great trip! Can't wait to see more! Big Hugs!

  8. If you guys wanna visit, I'd recommend booking for a
    California vacation homes
    to stay in. It's cheap.
