After staying for a few days in Carmel, it’s time to go home. We took Highway 1 (Pacific Coast Highway) on the way from Carmel to SFO. It is probably one of the most beautiful highway we’ve seen. It was a good drive as the scenery was amazing along the California coastline.
Artichoke and Garlic Farms
There were some artichoke and garlic farm along the highway. We stopped for a quick snack of fried artichoke.
Never tried anything like that before. It’s fresh and yummy. Who knows fried vegetables can taste so good.
Santa Cruz Beach Boardway Amusement Park
Anyway, since our flight was at night, so we had the whole day to kill. We stopped by Santa Cruz Beach Boardway to spend the day. 55 Minutes drive from Carmel, 1 hour to SFO Airport.
Big Basin Redwoods State Park – Waddell Beach
Baker Beach – for the view of Golden Gate Bridge and the sunset
Keep driving into the sunset for another 1 hour or so we have reached Baker beach to see the sunset on the Golden Gate Bridge.
That most amazing Californian sunset
