  • There is no better place for creative inspiration than Big Sur ... even when it's closed off by washed out bridges and landslides. We hiked the bypass trail to get around the collapsed bridge and had the amazing experience of walking down California's Highway 1 with basically no traffic!  Lunch at #Nepenthe, a walk to the #HenryMillerMemorialLibrary, and all these gorgeous views.  It was like going back in time.

  • We got made a wrong turn on the way to San Gregorio and found a gorgeous fairytale forest hidden off a secluded mountain road. Serendipity at its finest! We even found a swimming hole. Lately I've learned that when you get lost, keep on going because you're probably on your way to something splendid.
