Right before you become a swanky 30-year old, like I did this morning, it’s important to say goodbye to your 20s. I did so by checking out Clint Eastwood‘s former mayorship town of Carmel. I can totally see why the old man hung out by the sea – it’s legitimately gorgeous!
But, there’s really not much to do in a beach town, regardless of how lovely it may be. So after a few pics, wows, and ahhhs, my husband and I were on our way. Driving to the Big Sur is awe-inducing and then some. Photos just don’t do it justice. Check em out below!
After a bit, we stopped off in one of its many parks and took a scenic hike through the woods to a beautiful beach: the coastal waters of the Pacific Ocean surrounded by majestic cliffs are pure serenity! We also saw a naked surfer and a bunny, so there was that.
