In the morning, after breakfast, we were on the road again up the coast.
Our first stop was at Monarch Butterfly Grove. The butterflies look like the leaves in trees! It is open October to February. There are over 28,000!
We took yet another detour and found yet another park! This one had ocean views and a tire swing. It was called Dinosaur Cave Park. Sarah and I were on the tire swing, and it was crazy.
It was going soo high spinning around like mad. I was partly responsible for the craziness.
Piedras Blancas is a six mile long stretch of elephant seals.
All the young males were there when we went. In two weeks from Thanksgiving, the adult males will come and fight over the females.
Our next stop was at the Madonna Inn. Its guest rooms have many different designs. We like the ones with rocks. Madonna Inn has around 100 different rooms each to a separate theme.
We made a stop at Moonstone Beach. It has a lot of unique stones.
The beach also had climbing rocks, a tree and a cave.
It was a long drive for lunch. We had cheeseburgers for Thanksgiving at Ragged Point Inn.
We drove across Bixby Bridge on the way back. There has been many car commercials on it. To see some of our drive you can click this link. There was more stunning scenery like this:
We stayed at a Marriott Residence Inn in Salinas.
Day two was just as fun if not more as day one.
The other days of the trip were:
