The iconic Point Lobos, made famous by photographer Brett Weston and his father Edward Weston, is geologically unique and contains rich and diverse plant and animal life. Point Lobos is considered the crown jewel of the California state park system. I should have planned to stay two days to capture both morning and evening light.

Bixby Creek Bridge is one of the most photographed bridges in California due to its graceful architecture and magnificent setting.

Big Sur, described the "greatest meeting of land and water in the world" by landscape artist Francis McComas, is the longest and most scenic stretch of undeveloped coastline in the continental US.

The day ended at the Santa Cruz pier where dozens of California Sea Lions had taken over a boat launch. The sign at the launch states "OK to prod sea lions for access".
