Big Sur

So many highlights. The drive along Route 1, Pacific Ocean just a salt spray away, then climbing up along Big Sur to the magnificent beaches, such as in Julia Pfeiffer National Park. We stayed in a Yurt at Trebones, the hippest place for an overnight stay, lying on our bed watching the stars.

On we traveled, to San Francisco, arriving at dusk to a muffled banshee cry of a police siren lost in the fog. Perfect introduction to the perfect American city. 

The hepcats, bums, beats and hippies may be long gone, but the vibe remains. Not to mention Alcatraz, the Marin Headlands & Muir Woods. Hitchcock fans will go crazy at the opportunity to spot the various location shoots for Vertigo.
