    Big Sur Camping

    Sharon and I rode down the coast Saturday morning to Kirk Creek Campground.
    But first we stopped at the Wagon Wheel on Carmel Valley Rd.
    Eggs Benedict...


    Sharon resting at the Fernwood Resort...


    The weather was perfect with temps in the mid sixties...


    After setting up the tent we climbed down to the beach...
    Soaker!




    We sat on the bluff and watched the earth spin...



    An almost full moon filled the sky.


    Our campsite came with a free Australian Shepard, Artemus. He loved to fetch.
    Passers by wondered how we got the the dog on the bike.


    On the way home we stopped to see McWay Falls...




    The full monty...

    Wagon Wheel!

    One of my faves. I like the little joint next to the Safeway a little further out Carmel Valley Road, too. They make their own granola and it's wonderful.

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    It gives solace when the wind is blowing and the wind chill is way below zero.

    Great Pictures

    WOW! Gorgeous scenery. Even on the best days here in Illinois the scenery pales by comparison. Thank you for sharing!

    Nice

    Makes me homesick. I've seen those falls but never knew their name. Have you ever checked out Andrew Molera state park, just before Pfeiffer Big Sur on the coast side? It's a walk-in site so the moto would be unattended which could be a bad thing. But it's a beautiful area, Big Sur Creek goes past the edge of the meadow where camping is allowed and dumps into the Pacific (nice surf break!). It's also on the migratory path of the monarch. Great hiking trails along the coastal bluffs. It's one of the better places to rent horses and ride on the beach, you know, if you have one of those white cotton button down shirts and a Fabio wig.......... anyway, what great weather!!! it's raining here.......again.......... thanks for posting!

    Go soothingly through the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

    The tent was awesome. I don't know how they could call it a 3 person though. High quality zippers. Pitches easily. You can open the fly vents thru a zipper from inside the tent. Color coded straps to indicate which poles go where.
