Meandering up the Coast - San Francisco, Paso Robles, Monterey, Pigeon Pointe
When I travel, I have taken to being more instantly available to my friends and followers by posting on my Instagram account @lifeunsensored or www.instagram.com/lifeunsensored
and let's face it, it's easier to go from phone to post in 3.5 seconds. But I AM a photographer. And I do have a travel camera. And it did travel with me to China, Japan, Bali, and this weekend, San Francisco. So, my mid year, almost-summer resolution, is to blog more about my travels using photos I take - both with the phone and the camera. Starting now.
It had been almost 6 years since I had been to San Francisco and the drive there, as well as the days spent hiking the hills in the city, drew me in as before. Coastal Route 1 was still closed at Big Sur, so those breathtaking views were closed to us, but new views were found and savored in Monterey, Pigeon Pointe, Santa Barbara, and of course, the City by the Bay. It was a foodie-driven, chilly spring trip, but one worth the drive.
