DRIVING BETWEEN SAN JOSE AND CARMEL, NORTH CALIFORNIA FOR A CHANGE...

equally sunny and cool than Southern California, hehe, just a bit less classic cars on the roads :-)

aaah... a bit of Ansel Adams style view of California by myself ;-)

palmtrees and antiques... hmm smooth mix

 

up in the Carmel Hills, loads of pinetrees, hehe, South = Palmtrees, North = Pines!

dunes... fields...  hehe, long drive saw allot of different settings...

not sunny all over the place, close to the shoreline fog is very common, the marine layer!

and after the prairies, up and down the hills...

 

monteray highways, fog in the background, but hey it's nice there by the beach, check out these pics, just look at the pacific ocean and the Laguna... hmmm.. nice for hollidayz :-)

cool Monteray House, hehe, not cheap out here :-)

after the stop in Monteray.. back to San Jose!

aah the Pacific, love the West Coast!

now that's a nice Dune!  this place is called... Sand City, hehe well chosen name!

up next the wetlands, een bekke gelijk het Zwin bij ons quoi LoL!
