Pacific Ocean, shot along Pacific Coast Highway.
For one day of the vacation, my family and I just drove down along Pacific Coast Highway. It has awesome views of the ocean; the road seeming to dangle right over the waves at times. It's also really nice in that there are tons of places along the highway to pull over and admire the view. Which we did, repeatedly. For most of the trip we were, quite literally, stopping every two minutes. At which point we would get out of the car, admire the view, maybe shoot a few photos...then get back in the car to go another two minutes down the road and repeat the process.
All in all, the trip took about 6 hours.
We went about 80 miles.
