Having pumped iron on Venice beach..(yeah right)..we drove out from LA in a blue convertable. Stopped over in Santa Barbara to witness Elvis play on the beach. Forward to San Luis Obispo to stay at the stunningly kitsch Madonna Inn. Cruised highway 1, passing through clouds to dangle our feet in a cool stream at Big Sur. Caught Carmel to spot Clint Eastwood. Sampled Santa Cruz to discover why I was intrigued by the place. A right turn drive out to the stunning Yosemite and swim in a pool while watching out for bears. Finally crossing the Golden gate bridge into my favourite city San Francisco and a drink at Versuvios. Next time I’ll write a book while On the road.
