We drove over to the Pacific Ocean yesterday afternoon. Our route took us over the hill via 84; we stopped to grab some sandwiches at the General Store in San Gregorio. From there we drove south, past Pescadero to Pebble Beach, where I took a few photos.

We looped back to the north on Bean Hollow Road, and continued on Stage Road after passing through Pescadero (guess we were missing rural farm country, otherwise,why drive inland when there’s an ocean a mile west?)

We eventually ended up going north on highway 1, planning to take 92 back over the hill.  Along the way we stopped at a delightful pumpkin patch, the Tunitas Creek Family Farm, where I got a number of great photos!

There are a few more images from the afternoon on Flickr.
