Traveling the Pacific Coast Highway,LA-SF
TRAVELING THE PACIFIC COAST HIGHWAY, LA-SF was a joy!
From south of LA to north of SF, this is one of nature’s gifts to us all.Ocean’s roar, waves cascade, with mossy green hills over shoulder. Tiny villages, quaint inns, and historic sites abound wherever you go. Witness the tall timbers in redwood country, bountiful rivers beckoning in front of you, and an abundance of organic wherever you travel to. Vineyards by the hundreds in nearly every part of the route we traveled with so many charming turn-of-the century places to stay. Yet the big cities of LA and SF afforded a different aura, one of sophistication and taste. A diverse people with many skills, we found a creative burst of energy and style, and a richness of spirit throughout.
LA has it’s monuments, its record breaking venues, its fame and fortune while Santa Barbara has its quaintness, personal and upfront, a lifestyle like no other, while SF has its history, its famous seaport, and trolly cars, and the cuisine of many nations. Napa, Sonoma, and Mendocino have a culture all their own steeped in organics; a statement to the world.
California is god’s gift to man. And its highways and byways are a tribute to its genius.
We were so grateful to be there. From place to place we were gifted by the use of a very trustry motorcar that got us there in style and comfort and with a dozen safety features which came in handy as we drove furiously wherever we went and with so much to cover. VW EOS is the car we relied on. A thrustry 6 speed transmission with power to spare.A real road hugger. Nearly 30 mpg on the highway and so reliable. And thanks to their automatic navigation tool the car dircted us. Nice stereo sound system too. We did over 1,000 miles with it. We’d do it again if we could.
