Afterwards we went to Seaside Bar & Grill, which looked kind of shifty but actually ended up being delicious. Then we headed back to our room to sit by the fire and get some shut eye.
The next morning we went to Cambria and had breakfast at The Cambria café. Alyssa and I loved Cambria it's a small town with some good shops and scenery. then came part two of the long drive to Big Sur.
This drive was pretty wicked. Long stretches of weaving roads in combination with foggy cliffs made for a scene out of Jurassic Park, I was half expecting a pterodactyl to appear out of the fog and take our car! Rockslides mudslides and windy lanes don't mix with speeding on-coming traffic and one way roads. It took us a while but we made it at 1:30 PM at the Fernwood resort in time for the beautiful ceremony.
Although it poured the entire wedding we all had so much fun listening to toasts, loving and kind words from everyone, and even some homemade cookies from an awesome group of kids! We had so much fun and we are so happy for our new married friends!
That was one of the coldest/wettest nights I've ever experienced, Lyss and I were drenched and it was foggy and 1 o'clock in the morning so driving mountain roads was an adventure!
The next morning clouds opened up it was a beautiful sunny drive home, but first course you have to stop for in and out. We made our way through wine country, elephant seal stops, and beach cities and ended up in the town of Solvang. I see the draw here but my personal opinion is that it was definitely overrated. Aside from the cute Dutch architecture and amazing baked goods, I can't see myself spending more than a day there without wanting to see the beautiful views from the drive getting there.
