The Californian and Oregon coastlines offer hundreds and hundreds of scenic vistas. When the road is not hugging the coast itself, it meanders through hilly pine and cypress forests. It’s a journey best not hurried. Small drive-in viewing points offer a bench to sip a cup of tea and take in the sea air. Invariably there will be a path to a driftwood strewn beach.
We built in a lot of time for this trip. But it’s not enough.
