day 7, bb

today is day 7 of the spring break trip

we started at the hotel and after getting lost we
finally got the correct street to start the 17 mile drive
on pebble beach
(my gps was working correctly-my wife she)

it was cold and misty that made the scenes almost
mystical in appearance
this 17 mile drive is one of the recommended drives to make in
the us
it goes along the coast line and weaves through pebble beach
didnt see tiger

there are cypress trees that are only found on the monterey
pennisula and not anywhere else
the oldest lone cypress tree is pictured below
it is several hundred years old and sits alone on this cropping
of rocks
what history it could tell

point jo(e) is a point that boats use to shipwreck at thinking it
was the harbor of monterey
my wife she enjoyed that sign
her name is jo

we wound through the cypress forest and along the beaches
my wife she made me stop and look at all the seals

after leaving the 17 mile drive we drove through carmel
(clint eastwood was the mayor once)
carmel by the sea became known after the earthquake in
san francisco in the early 1900s when people fled sf to come
to carmel to stay
it was recognized as a place to stay and became popular after that

from there we drove down the big sur to san luis obispo and then
to santa barbara
wouldnt want to drive and text on that road
the views were just awsome
we could have stopped and just watched the ocean for hours at
multiple sites
we traveled through the edge of a redwood forest and would
have liked to stay longer but wanted to get to  sb to see my wife
shes family

if we ever drive big sur again would like to take a few days to do
it and do hiking on some of the trails and would do more
frequent stopping to look at the scenery

(after reading tomorrows blog may not want to make that trip again)

my wife she did not like me viewing the scenery too much as i
drove as it was like being behind someone texting
called seaxting

slugging out at my wet suitcase sister in law shes house and with
my mother in law she-she is  the chocolate candy (sees) providing
then there is some bb to watch
have to be selective of the games to watch as i could take up
all four days watching the games
will do that for sure in the 2nd weekend of the games

then there is the wedding journey stuff
think i escaped that this week as no men are allowed
dang it

butler won and in final four
ucon outlasted arizona-guess they arent too tired yet

today its kentucky vs north carolina
blue vs blue
dynasty vs dynasty
should be a good game

then kansas plays vcu
kansas is the only team left on my bracket
does vcu make it
