I have really missed writing on this blog. I realized it has been almost one year since I have updated on our road trip, but I am back at it today and excited as ever to relive our little adventure. So here we go…..
Going to Big Sur was not the only reason we stopped off in Marina, CA. There are some well know golf courses in Monterey and Mike was very eager to play one of them…namely, Pebble Beach. I have watched golf with Mike plenty of times and I knew this place was special but I wasn’t prepared for the views.
Mike was able to get a tee time on a Monday afternoon and Micheal and I weren’t going to pass up a chance to ride in the cart with him. I decided to be the designated photographer and Micheal was our comic relief…..as always.
After dinner on Sunday we thought we would ride out to Pebble Beach and check things out but sadly we were stopped at the gate. Silly us! Of course this area would be gated. We were informed that we would have to pay ten dollars to ride through unless we had a tee time.We got a map of the area from the guard and left. We would return on Monday with our tee time.
The day was cloudy and a bit cold but still beautiful!
Even if you don’t play golf, you should definitely drive the 17-mile drive!
Before we start I just want to say that I took over 200 pictures. It was really hard narrowing down just a few for this post. I really hope everyone enjoys going to Pebble Beach with us.
Got to see some wildlife…these seagulls were huge!
A great time to take a picture.
Hole 7 was gorgeous!
woah…..it is a steep cliff!
While on the course we saw surfers….
and even Micheal showed us his moves.
Mike had three others playing with him. This was the oldest of the three and he got a special cart. It is a one seater that is allowed to drive all over the course. We had to stay on the path.
What a fun day with my husband!
then this happened. First sand trap of the day.
Even though this is Pebble Beach each player cleans up after himself….
Great round of golf and I am sure he will never forget this experience!

Next adventure…..San Fransisco.
