After a restless night sleep in Monterey, we have a complimentary waffle or two for breakfast before taking a little side trip to see the rest of the scenic north coast route and in particular the Bixby Creek Bridge with its stunning views.
Along the way we discover this amazing town called Carmel-by-the-Sea which is located on the Monterey Peninsula. It’s known for it beautiful scenery and apparently in the 1910’s 60 percent of the houses were built by actors, poets, and artists and it still has a rich artistic presence now.
On the road again and we head towards the Big Sur coast however like the day before the road is closed ahead and we decide to go as far as the Bixby Creek Bridge (aka Bixby Bridge) for a photo opportunity with all the other tourists on the coast that day.
Apparently it is one of the most photographed bridges in California due to its aesthetic design. It’s a 110 m reinforced concrete open-spanded arch bridge and was opened in 1932 and is one of the tallest single-span bridges in the world.
Now we put peddle to the metal and drive straight through to San Francisco to get to our hotel Becks Motor Inn by sunset.
