The Hermitage and the Bixby Bridge...


Our journey up Highway 1 continued with a visit to "The Hermitage"

A monastery south of Big Sur...beautiful, serene property! An ideal spot for rest and meditation for the soul.

They also sell fruitcakes, which my husbands says are THE BEST, and date bread. These are both made by the monks at the Hermitage.  We bought a loaf of the date bread...I'm not a fan of fruitcakes!

First sign of the "Bixby Bridge". One of my favorite bridges, especially when we are on the Harley! I feel like one of "the pack" from the movie "Easy Rider"

On the other side of the bridge...isn't it amazing!

And a picture of the coast looking west from the Bixby Bridge...absolutely breathtaking!

It was a great day...at times the rain was very heavy but we ventured on to Monterey. All in all, it was a perfect day!

Thanks for sharing our journey with us...it was a pleasure to have you along for the ride!
