Morning got off to a somber start with a phone call that Bob's brother Larry passed away last night. He had not been ill, due to retire at the end of August, mowed his lawn and appears to have had a heart attack. Bob will fly to Spokane for the memorial service from wherever we happen to be at the time. We know we will be with Larry again someday, until then we have memories...
Next stop Cambria, one of my favorite little towns. Made it down one block and had to photograph a street sign that read "nitt witt" no joke. We then discover Nitt Witt is a historical landmark so, we had to check it out. Just for grins I popped out of the car while Bob was taking the photo and told him it occured to me I should take his photo next to the address sign :-) the sign hanging in front of the toliets read, "next tour at 1:00".......we passed.
We arrived in Carmel only to find the rest of the our fellow road trippers of the world in the same spot....another quick exit as we again escape the crowds. Big Sur was so beautiful, I loved all the forests lining the narrow road, I long for the redwoods and then my beautiful Montana.
If you look at the lower left corner of the photo to the right, that is the roof of a house just under the green tree tops.... Not enough medication for me to even stop by for a cup of tea!
Spending the evening as well as tomorrow in Monterrey, maybe a little shopping and a trip to the famous aquarium. We have a lovely room at the Hotel Pacific (thanks Rebecca), showered, fed and sitting by the fire.....yes a fire, it cold here. Until tomorrow :-)
