I was thrilled to be able to spend a long weekend enjoying the splendor of the Big Sur coast in California recently. My sister, Jessie, and her best friend, Jessie (aka 'the Jessies') have been running the Big Sur Marathon for the past 3 years, and this was my year to be at the finish line to see them complete yet another 26.2 miles! We spent a beautiful weekend in Monterey and Carmel dining at some of the many amazing restaurants in the area, walking the beaches, talking to sea lions, shopping at darling boutiques on Ocean Ave. in Carmel, drinking wine, exploring the rocky Big Sur coast, and doing a lot of laughing!
Mornings are so lovely on Monterey Bay!
They did it! 26.2 miles through Big Sur...lots of hills!

Eating escargot, wood-fired pizza, and sipping Sancerre at darling French/Italian bistro, La Bicyclette. Our silly waiter was not totally thrilled about having his picture taken!
I love you, Big Sur! I will definitely be back!
With love, Hallie
