Last August we took a road trip up the One to San Francisco, stopping at different places along the California coast. We stayed in San Simeon (a small town that seemed to be mainly hotels) as we had a tour of Hearst Castle booked. We enjoyed a lovely, relaxing picnic dinner on the beach after driving most of the day. I had fun photographing the view of the coast and beach, the sunset and this large rock right where we happened to be sitting. A number of kids were climbing on it, looked pretty fun!
The quality of the sun light was beautiful and even though it got a little chilly, it was worth watching the changing colours of the sky and surf as the sun dipped lower and lower.
