Big Sur state of mindSpend a perfect day on the Central Coast
BY AMY ASMAN
A while back I announced to my husband, Peter, that I was going to plan a romantic weekend getaway. I wanted to spend a couple of days exploring Catalina Island, or head up to San Francisco to see a ballet. I had lots of pretty ideas floating around in my head … until I took a peek at our bank account. (Peter and I are saving up for a house, so let’s just say things are tight.)
With a more reasonable budget in mind, I started thinking about some of the fun things we could do in a day. Luckily, we live in one of the most beautiful places on Earth, where there are plenty of activities to choose from. We decided to go on a romantic adventure up scenic U.S. Highway 1 for some hiking, sightseeing, and noshing—the end result being one of the most beautiful days I’ve spent on the Central Coast.
I’ll let the pictures—and captions—speak for themselves.
