Please, let me know if there's anything to improve or add to the plan - and especially if there's something wrong with it. The CA forum participants have been a huge help in planning. Thank you all. We (Thelma & Louise) like easy hikes, seaside scenery, wildlife, wine-tasting, taking photos. We like to go at an easy pace and enjoy. We'll probably grab lunch on the go, would like nice dinners (prefer good, not expensive food, may splurge once or twice)
Saturday: 9.15 Elkhorn Slough tour (2 hrs), Cannery Row for lunch and wine-tasting, Point Lobos State Park, overnight at the Sand Castle in Seaside. SUGGESTIONS please: where to watch the sunset (6.30-ish), where to have dinner
Sunday: 9.00 WhaleWatching tour (4 hrs), Pacific Grove (coastal scenery), Mission San Carlos Borromeo in Carmel, overnight at Ripplewood in Big Sur. SUGGESTIONS - sunset? dinner?
Monday: Drive to Cambria, hike to McWay Falls. Overnight at Little Sur Inn (QUESTION - this looked really good on their website, so it's a splurge for us, do you think it's worth it?) SUGGESTIONS - stopping points along the way?
Tuesday: Hearst Castle (Grand and upstairs rooms tours), lunch at Sebastian General Store, wine-tasting in and around Paso Robles. Overnight at the Adelaide Inn. SUGGESIONS - diiner? anything to do in the evening?
Wednesday: Drive to Las Vegas. SUGGESTIONS - what to do in Paso Robles for a couple of hours in the morning.
