This past weekend, Adam and I took a trip to one of our favorite places ever—Big Sur. We had been once before (remember this video?!), and despite the fact that we were there in the middle of one of the worst storms of the season, I fell in love. Did I mention that was my first time tent camping? Let’s just say this time we brought an air mattress. And a hair dryer! And lots of wine and snacks. Adam tells me it’s not “real” camping since where we were there was a five-star restaurant on site, a bathroom with hot showers and full ocean views but whatever. I camp how I want!
We ended up extending our stay by a day to hike through coastal redwoods and eat lunch at Nepenthe, one of my bucket list restaurants. Through a simple lunch of mushroom soup and turkey sandwiches, I experienced Big Sur like never before. This time around, the weather was perfect and we couldn’t have asked for a better getaway. For all of those wondering, we stayed at Treebones the first two nights (tent camped rather than yurts) and stayed at a small cabin at Ripplewood the third night. I highly recommend both spots!
I’m happy to share our photos with you guys (click on the thumbnails for larger versions). Look out for Malcom the elephant seal pup—he was a sneaky one!
