On Shore, Offshore
We spent these sunny days on shore, visiting with our old friends Dennis and Catie, who have just moved to Pacific Grove, adjacent to Monterey. We toured, hiked, picnicked, and explored all along the coastline, from Monterey to Big Sur. We were dazzled by the scenery and by the great enthusiasm of our friends for their new home in their native California. Dennis was adamant that we stop and admire the Bixby Bridge along Highway 1, just north of Big Sur.
Thursday we finally persuaded ourselves to resume boat travel and left Monterey midday. Late in the afternoon, we passed the Bixby Bridge, and got a view of it from the oceanside. The O'Leary enthusiasm is infectious, and we were quite transfixed by this view of the coast from offshore. This photo is for you, Dennis!
