California is blessed with a diverse geography and is known variously as The Land of Milk and Honey, The El Dorado State, The Golden State and The Grape State. Exploring California to the fullest on a short visit is not easy! With whatever the little time I had, made a trip to most of the places around San Francisco Bay area. The drive from Cupertino through Santa Cruz to Half Moon bay along Route 1 was indeed memorable. This photo was clicked from one of the beach view points over Cabrillo Highway.
The wind was too chill to hang out for long though it was noon when we were passing by. If you are heading there around christmas season, be prepared for cold weather. All along route 1, the view is very scenic as pacific ocean to one side and the greenish mountains to the other are a feast for the first time visitor! Driving is indeed a pleasure on this route as the traffic would be very sparse. We took a detour from Half Moon bay towards Woodside Hills.
This is the most wonderful road to travel, it seems. Missed it on our trip to Cal.
There is always a next time! hope you make it then 🙂
Awesome click Mohan.
Breathtaking photo. Being near the Pacific must have been a refreshing experience for you.
Thank you! yes, it was indeed an awesome experience.

superb enticing pic and penning. very alluring.
Never had the chance to visit Cali back when I was in the Lone Star state. Beautiful pic. Did you visit the grape state and the awesome wineries ??
I couldn’t visit the wineries this time… may be on my next visit if I get lucky 🙂
I have read about this highway in the book bright, shiny lights..the author has called it the best stretch of road in California..is it true?
Yes, one of the best stretches I would say 😉

This was like a teaser. Lovely pic, and tempting writeup describing your impressions. Had really thought I would find a lot of details and observations like you usually put out in your posts about places you have been to or have lived in. I am guessing that post is on its way.
You got it Subhorup! Well, since i am getting back to writing mode, starting with smaller ones with crisp details. Will surely plan for a detailed articles 🙂
