It’s spring break 2015, and I ended up in a 1970’s RV named Big Bertha with 4 college students. The only plan was to drive down the California Coast to Los Angeles and hope we make it back in a week. What ensued was a crowded RV trip filled with too many roadside photo shoots and afternoons on a beach somewhere.
First stop: Cannon Beach, Oregon. A cloudy and windy location off of Highway 101, this small beach town is worth the stop for quick lunch and few pictures in front of the infamous Haystack Rock.
The best part of a road trip is a “view point ahead” sign. I can never ignore them and I’m rarely disappointed. A roadside pullout may not look like much, but you probably just haven’t scaled the side of a cliff or climbed through muddy tide pools to find the best view.
The biggest drive through tree is surprisingly small and the Redwoods tend to block out all the nice weather California promised you.
Next stop: San Francisco, California.
Somewhere on Pacific Coast Highway we pulled over for a few pictures of the view but ended up exploring the cliffside. We found an abandoned house which had the most beautiful breakfast view I have ever seen.
Last stop: Los Angeles, California. The last few days consisted of living on the beach, hiking Runyon Canyon, and watching sunsets from the Santa Monica Pier. Thankful for the adventures with Big Bertha, even though she broke down every couple hundred miles.
