The drive along Route 1 is beautiful! The rugged coast is just a perfect spot to stop and enjoy the view. If you are lucky enough to find a painter along the way, you may leave with a beautiful picture of the view as well!

I can stand here and just breathe in the ocean air. Jagged rocks with scattered beaches in between. A lot to explore, bring a good set of hiking boots because trails galore!
