on the road - day 21 - san simmer

Who Got The Keys To My Beemer by Beenie Man on Grooveshark
the pacific coast highway, wow.
this was a definite roadtrip 2012 highlight. we headed north on saturday morning to san simeon where we'd spend the night before heading on to big sur. ideally i wanted to spend two nights in big sur, but because it was the weekend saturday night was booked everywhere. san simeon is a tiny tiny town about an hour south and it's famous for it's elephant seals and proximity to hearst castle, but it also has a gorgeous wild, coastline. with it being so windy on saturday the whole area reminded me of tofino on vancouver island, stunner.

on the road - day 20 - last day in la

after the disaster walking around la on thursday i decided to go back to my favourite part of the city for my last day, santa monica and venice beach, and just relax.
we started our day at urth cafe on main and had the best meal of the la visit. it was so delicious (the coconut cake was amazing!!) and such a great atmosphere, this would be my hang out if i lived in the area. then we hung out at the beach, before finally ending our day with a drive up mulholland to see the city and the hollywood sign, in and out burger and a walk around the silverlake reservoir to burn off that cheeseburger goodness.
i didn't think i'd be a la kind of girl and i was right, but i did fall for the beach
so if i ever head back i'd definitely make santa monica or venice my home base.
