Lunch in Big Sur




Here was our view while having lunch in Big Sur last week. It certainly made the tuna fish sandwich. The California coast is really incredible this time of year. You can see why California cows are so happy!

Our next trip will be from Big Sur to Cambria. I can't wait.

Feeling just a tad envious right now!!! So beautiful, it calls me you know..........I'll get there one day. :D

Lydia said...

Were you, by any chance, dining at Nepenthe'? ONe of my favorite memories is eating there. It's been way too long a time since then and I will enjoy your photos of the trip (maybe it'll get us to planning one of our own)!

I love to travel through different people's blogs and see all these different parts of the world and all their varied weather patterns.

The Big Sur seems to be one of the better ie warmer, greener places. Lucky you.

Deborah said...

Such beautiful, hazy hills in the background! A husk of dry bread and a glass of water would be fabulous n a setting like that.

Deborah said...

PS I liked your 'quote of the day', Nancy. Well, I always do.

Brian Miller said...

beautiful...would love to be there...

It is a beautiful place. Been there once myself, though it was a lifetime ago.

DJan said...

I spent the night once camping at a beach in Big Sur (just throwing a sleeping bag on the sand). I remember waking to the sound of the tide coming in and I was stranded until it went out again. Thanks for the memories; it is still a beautiful place.

Joanne said...

Doesn't food always taste better eaten outdoors? Especially with views like that!

Lori said...

It's gorgeous! Yes, I'd love to visit and be a happy cow. :)

California Girl said...

I was going to guess Nepenthe and Lydia beat me to it. Looks like the weather is decent. Cambria is a gorgeous little town. Will you stop by Hearst's Castle too?

scarlethue said...

I've always wanted to go there!

Whitney Lee said...

That is much more picturesque than anywhere I have eaten lunch lately! I would most definitely be a happy cow if that were my view. Gorgeous pictures.

Oh boy! Have fun and be safe.

Rachael said...

Hi Nancy! I'm sorry I lost you as a follower, but I had some issues going on and had to temporarily shut down my blog. I hope things are well with you (as it seems they are from your posts!) Take care! :)

Nancy, it's so beautiful there. One of the nicer things about life is having these moments where it's all so stunningly perfect, and idyllic. I mean, those shots look like what most people would envision for heaven, don't they? They're warming just to look at.

Plus, there appears to be beer in heaven, always a plus ;-)

gayle said...

So very beautiful!! Wish I was there!! I am a fairly new follower and can't wait to read more!!

The Good Cook said...

Oh that is so beautiful. TBHITW and I once drove down the coast from San Francisco to Big Sur - we stopped at a "hippie" resort called Ventana? It was one of the most romantic, beautiful places I've ever eaten...

Jo said...

That looks like a pretty good glass of beer too. What a wonderful place to enjoy it...!

Emom said...

Splendid...I seem to forget how much I love the west coast...miss my travels there..smiles.

Cloudia said...

Thanks for taking us along.

Aloha, Friend!

Have fun!

Wanted to go to Big Sur since the 70's, never mind you can stand in for me!

Mental P Mama said...

So beautiful. It is 25 with a wind chill of 15.

Rain said...

Beautiful Nancy! I love the first photo, maybe because I'm hungry...but it's really a creative shot! :)

Gemel said...

Like being in heaven, lucky you...

Dudette said...

That is beautiful! We don't have anything like that in my ugly state.

Trish and Rob MacGregor said...

Oh, I want to meet you there for lunch!

linda said...

wow, you missed the rain apparently or it never got down that far? how nice to be in such a heavenly place for a couple of days!

have fun, eat lots and bask in that lovely sun!

Nancy said...

Hi Guys, Yes it was Nepenthe! I didn't notice the little hippie place Vantana, but it was our first foray past Monterey on that part of the coast. The next trip I will definitely call you, Marlene, for lodging ideas and stop by to say hi. And yes, I'm thinking a tour of Hearst Castle must be in the mix. Hope you are all warm on this cold February night - it's been snowing here all day. The warmth of the coast was such a treat.

SquirrelQueen said...

What an awesome view, anything would taste good in that setting. It looks really nice to me right now, we have had fog for weeks.

otin said...

Meanwhile it is 40 degrees and rainy here!

A Year on the Grill said...

Eleonora said...

I absolutely LOOOOOOVE Nepenthe! And their awesome ambrosia burgers eaten on that breathtaking terrace...

I took my son to the seahorse exhibit at the MBAQ this summer and we both really enjoyed it.

Pity we didn't hook up. Next time...

Ciao

Marguerite said...

Beautiful pics and view! Big Sur sounds wonderful! Enjoy!

Meeko Fabulous said...

I wanna take a trip up north sometime. California is so gorgeous and has so many hidden gems, you know?

Linda Pendleton said...

That has to be Nepenthe, isn't it? Such a beautiful spot and it came so close to that last big fire there. Or I should say, the fire came so close to it.

I love our CA coast, so beautiful.
