Coastal Tranquility - Pacific Coast Highway, California

The Pacific Coast Highway conjures up many different images in peoples minds. Perhaps they are different because of the length of the highway. The road runs 656 miles along California's coast. The road changes names here and there, but it is essentially the same road. Pick a section of the road and it will bring different things to mind. It might be the rocky shoreline of Big Sur,  the sea stacks in the ocean in places like Morro Bay, or the great small towns like Half Moon Bay just south of San Francisco. That doesn't include places like Monterey or Carmel or Pebble Beach or Santa Barbara. How about unusual places like eating in the Artichoke Restaurant in the artichoke capital of the world, Castroville. The list goes on and on. The point is that if you haven't driven that road, make sure you add it to your bucket list. I have lost count on how many times I have driven it (somewhere between 10 and 20 times) but each trip is a new adventure.
