E is for Epic

big sur

back now from the road trip to end all road trips: portland to los angeles, los angeles to portland via somewhat equal parts I-5, the 101 and CA-1. somewhere along the spectacular stretch that is big sur, we lost our minds. and I mean that in the best way, the very best way.

am now stuck in that place, that strange post-vacation place. wading through mountains of images and piles of laundry. one minute I'm happy to be home and the next, I'm weepy for the road. up and down, up and down.

one thing I know for sure: there are words and pictures to be shared.

  16. I just got from Big Sur too! You are right, you loose your mind, in the best way possible. Big Sur by far is one of the most breathtaking places I've been in the U.S..
    I live in Miami, born and raised in Portland, but let me tell you: I could LIVE in L.A. Venice/Santa Monica rocks.

    Can't wait to see your photos...

  18. Hi Andrea,

    I just found your delightful blog via Poppytalk - love your photos! My husband and I just spent time driving through Big Sur for our 10 year anniversary. Too awesome - the pics I took don't even do it justice.

    I'm bookmarking your blog under 'faves'. ;)
