Shoreline highway

yesterday we drove through the redwoods (amazing! picture another time), and then along the coast of california, on highway 1, also named the shoreline highway. winding roads with tight curves, sometimes right along the shore. high up and then down again. and up. and down. curve after curve after curve. i didnt drive, i wouldnt have dared. the roads were narrow too. we didnt go too fast, and also stopped at every amazing vista (there were too many), and took some little detours to see even more, like this lighthouse above.
this coast is really so different from the east coast!! i think i prefer this one....

Highway 1 is so beautiful! :-)
Are you going to make it all the way down here?

Many years ago, I travelled this road with two friends. We were all car sick. But we did enjoy the scenery when we could.

Highway 1 is slow going but beautiful. My favorite areas are around Gualala and Salt Point in Sonoma County and there are some accessible beaches just south of the Russian River.

Oh CaT, this sounds nice, another roadtrip and this time in California! You make the best of it with your stay in the US. Are you going to San Francisco too? Love the photos.

It was many decades ago when I drove along Highway 1. I still have fond memories of the scenery, like this.
