An early start from San Francisco took us down the coast, we made a quick stop at San Juan Bautisa, a state historic park which is directly on the San Andreas faultline, There is a mission and lots of the old buildings with a real small town atmosphere, there were lots of schoolchildren around as coming here is part of their 4th grade history lessons. We all really enjoyed this stop very much.

We carried on down the coast to 17 mile drive at Pebble Beach. This was an unspoilt area of coastline, with lots of birds and wildlife and some very very grand and expensive houses,
Onto Carmel by the Sea (where Clint Eastwood had been mayor) which is a very upmarket town with no street names or numbers just the names of the exclusive houses.
We had our lunch stop at Monteray which is a famous old fishing town, with many of the old buildings still standing.
Our hotel for the night was the Shore Cliff Lodge at Pismo beach and all the rooms had a view out to sea. It was a wonderful hotel and we wished we had more time here to explore the beach. Me and Richard could not resist a dip in the heated outdoor pool under the stars this evening.
