Highway 1 Road Trip | Pfeiffer Beach | Big Sur, California



A few months ago we hit the road for my 30th birthday trip up the California coast. Zora came along for the adventure and we met my best friend near the Redwoods. I’ve always wanted to drive up Highway One and see more of the central coast, so this was the perfect opportunity. I plan on posting a little guide with my recommended stops, but I thought it would be fun to share them individually first.

We picked Pfeiffer Beach as a stop to let Zora stretch out her legs and get a little play time in. It was a little drive off the main road (fair warning), but it ended up being the perfect play stop for everyone! Zora was SO, so happy. She is such a fun and easygoing travel companion.

That last photo makes me so happy. :) I loved watching my little family with baby Kit safe inside of me, basking in the sunshine. Road trips can be really good for your soul, and Big Sur had a very calming effect on me.

You could say we are fans.

    We took a mini day trip to drive down Highway 1 to Big Sur when we were in California a couple of years ago and it was perfect! Your pup looks so happy at the beach, and I’d love to take mine there one day!
