7:29 AM, Monterey Beach, California

we're still roadtripping (go back to sweden on sunday, so practically a week left). after a really awesome stay in new york for the wedding last weekend, to an awesome 5 days with the bunnybin and her family in gorgeous north carolina, and a full 3 days in and around san francisco with the rockin' hosting from nymsa and colin, we have finally braved the roads alone.

last night we made it to monterey (down highway 1 past half moon bay and santa cruz) and to our hotel for the night, the Best Western Beach Resort.

They do not lie. They are definitely on the beach. It's the most stunning thing. The waves are constantly crashing outside. Talk about a natural noisemaker. :)

This is the view I woke up to a short while ago. Filmed from our door...:

Sigh. If you've ever wanted to see what it's like living a few feet from the Pacific Ocean... this is it. (The room itself is "just" OK. The ocean view is where you go nuts.. )

i would take the view from your door over the boondock saints II trailer any day. ;)

i'm so glad you found this place! you really are right on the water; what a great way to sleep and wake up. you're going to get some spectacular views of the coast on your drive today, i'm sure.

thanks again for sharing so much of your holiday with us - col and i both had a really wonderful time and it really was a joy getting to know you both and take you to some of our favorite places.
