All good things must come to an end.....yesterday we had to take Kristen back to San Jose to catch her flight back to Denver. We made a day of it by driving the scenic, long way on Highway 1 through Big Sur. It was a beautiful day, and we had lunch at Nepenthe, a first for all of us. (http://www.nepenthebigsur.com/) We stopped at Point Lobos State Reserve, drove through Carmel and Monterey, then headed on up to San Jose. It was a long drive, but the scenery was spectacular!
