Kirk Creek Campground

We left Santa Cruz at 4pm and immediately got got stuck in rush hour traffic.  By the time we drove by Carmel By The Sea the sun was setting and we were wishing that we had left earlier.  We made it to the campsite about a hour past sunset and setup camp in the dark.  We ate dinner and walked the took Katie for a walk around the loop to checkout our neighbors.

This is our third visit to Kirk Creek Campground but this was the first time we were able to get the best spot, site 21. .

The next morning made some coffee and took our chairs over to the edge of the cliff to watch the dolphins and whales feeding close to shore.  once we saw a couple of dolphins playing in the waves like underwater surfers.  Gi took this picture with her mega zoom pocket camera.

On the second day we met a Dan and Sandy from Spokane Washington.  They were on a three month trip in their 2007 Itasca which is like our 2008 Winnebago View. We spent the day sharing stories about our RVs, their retirement, and our preparations for our full-time RV life.

Saturday I hiked down an old road from the campsite to the beach.  I sat there for a couple of hours and didn’t see a single person.  The sun was warm, the waves sounds wonderful and relaxed and listened to my audio book.

Sunday morning we packed up and headed home.  At one of the vista points we pulled out and Gi took a picture of the road ahead of us.  The drive through Big Sur is breathtaking.

What a great and relaxing weekend.
