We're planning a lil' trip at the end of October to celebrate our first married anniversary, among other things. We almost chose Hawaii. Kauai actually. In fact we still have reservations there in case we change our mind YET AGAIN. But at this point I think we've made up our mind. We're heading north for one of our very favorite fall trips. There's something magical about the Bay Area in October, isn't there? Maybe it's all the good food and golden light, but whatever it is moves me practically to tears when I imagine all the things we love up there.
First stop on said trip is Big Sur. We have a very important wedding to attend in San Diego the day before we take off, so we decided to cut the drive a little short and stay the night on the coast. Mostly because I NEED to have breakfast at Big Sur Bakery. Actually I wanted to have dinner there but they are selfish and insist on closing the restaurant on Sunday night. We will SURVIVE on morning pastry, I suppose.
But the point of this post is that I found the most perfect little place to stay for the night. Glen Oaks. yesssss. I had all but resigned myself to a spider crusted, rotting pine cabin thing on the highway (which would have been fine, considering we are just stopping over for the night), until I found this little gem today.
Cute, no? Kind of modern-ish with rustic Pendleton blankets and fire pits and beanie-wearing. I'm super excited. And it's pretty close in price to the spidery cabins with no design details. I'll always pay more for a little attention to the decors.
I was also pretty fired up about Treebones Resort and staying in a yurt on the cliff above the ocean, maybe would have even preferred it, but they have a two night minimum. Lame. On Sunday even. I mean really.
More on the vacation later. I just had to share this bit today. After I confirmed our reservation of course. In case a whole horde of you were also planning to stay in Big Sur that same night. I have to protect my vacation interests. You understand.
