In June, for our one year wedding anniversary, we took a long-awaited road trip down the west coast: Bainbridge Island to Santa Cruz. It's always been a dream of mine to fully experience the Pacific Coast Highway, and this was just the beginning (we have yet to continue past Santa Cruz, down through Monterey, Big Sur, etc). Soon enough.
We stopped in southern Oregon the first evening, stayed at a gorgeous B&B in Mendocino the second, and after many winding roads, sheer cliffs and a severe case of (wonderful, blissful) nausea, we made it to San Francisco (our destination) on the third day.
A fitting start in South Bend, WA.
