Big Sur, we stopped at a couple of our favorite places starting with Nepenthe restaurant.
Protea Love at Nepenthes
Nepenthe’s Gardens are pretty sweet…richly filled with succulents, CA Natives, and there is something always in bloom. BTW their restaurant,
Cafe Kevah, is reasonably priced and has a fantastic view.
Someone tell us the name of this plant please
Seriously…we really need to know the name of this plant (
The main driveway off of Hwy 1 is flanked with Italian Cypress (
Cupressus sempervirens). We fell in love with the Grevillea.
Down Sycamore Canyon Rd, there is a sweet little garden to see when you head towards
Matti's rock balancing at the beach
Just before leaving Big Sur proper, check out
McWay Fall, sometimes called Julie Pfeiffer Falls. BTW, the falls often dry up by mid summer because lack of rain.

We took highway 1 through Big Sur home from the Central Coast a couple weeks ago. We hiked to the beautiful
Salmon Creek Falls, stopped at Nepenthe for a yummy brunch/beer at Cafe Kevah in the sun. Next, we stopped at the fabulous Big Sur Spirit Garden extravaganza. I love their funky collection of plants and unique things. Never seen a show there, but I’m sure it would be magical.
