Let the birthday/anniversary celebrations begin with trip down the coast

The Adventurers packed up the car and headed south this morning for a four day getaway to celebrate D’s 70th birthday and their third anniversary.

First stop was Rocky Point, which they’ve enjoyed over the years, when they’ve been in the Carmel area. Its location overlooking the Pacific is fabulous and the cioppino is yummy, with lots of seafood and a broth with a bit a punch.

They did a post lunch short hike at Andrew Molera State Park, hiking to Molera Beach which is popular with surfers and body boarders. L liked the old barn there.

Then it was down the Coast to Big Sur and their home of the next three nights, Post Ranch Inn, one of the west coast’s most famous luxury resorts, if not the country’s. Its setting is as magnificent as advertised.

They paused in the spirit nest, which  is about six feet off the ground. D took a short nap, thanks to the pillows scattered inside.

Their ocean view room was as advertised. Wow – what gorgeous stretch of coastline…

    Looks like you’re having a fabulous time. I hadn’t heard of the Post Ranch resort until you mentioned it on the phone, and the next day, I saw an Insta post from friends who were staying there! Wow! What a treat! Happy birthday to Dennis and happy 3rd Anniversary! So glad we’ve got our date at HMB on the books! See you soon!
    Love,
    Ginger
