Serenaded by the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, and Coldplay, we drove through Carmel and the Pacific came into view. Soon we were passing Point Sur with it's turn-of-the-century lighthouse. For an interesting read about it, click here!
Our first stop in Big Sur was the Big Sur Bakery for pancakes and eggs.

The interior of the library was equally unique. Books hanging from the ceiling...
and a sort of room divider...
... made of money -- all foreign currency.
Pelton is a family name so I was especially curious about the Pelton Wheel!
Our goal was a short hike to see McWay Waterfall. We started down a path which led us to a tunnel.
On the other side of the tunnel, the ocean came back into view!
There's nothing like a walk on the edge of the world!
This was our trail, skirting the cliffs over the Pacific.
Nestled in the hills along the path were morning glories...
...and other friends!
The weather was so nice, we opted to eat outside, with this as our view from our table...
The Bixby Bridge welcomed us back to the Carmel Highlands area and soon we were home, warm memories dancing in our heads.
This is a trip I highly recommend to anyone visiting the Monterey area!
