Road Tripping Highway 1
Classic tunes, tasty snacks and a beautiful landscape; the perfect road trip. There’s something adventurous about jumping in a car and making your own way to your chosen destination, you’re choosing a route with the stops and travel-time spent just the way you like it. Our short little trip along Highway 1 was particularly exciting, it was such a fun way to get a beautiful view of sunny California! We headed off ready with beef jerky, sunflower seeds and a couple of bag of bagels (somewhat novelty food for us). With Van Morrison crooning in the background we played all those cheesy, time-filling games like I-spy and punch-buggy. My parents had plenty of anecdotes about the two years they’d spent living in California, so in a way it was like personalised commentary accompanying the lush scenery.
Above is a photo of my brother explore the cliff-face off of Highway 1 a little bit, we’d pulled over so that I could take a couple of photos. Pretty much as soon as we started driving again though we spotted a couple of vultures perched at the roadside, this photo is taken from inside the car as we drove past. With long drives there’s always the opportunity to pass the time taking plenty of shots.
