Voluntary Detour Tue, Aug 21, 2018
This past weekend my fiancée and I traveled south to Cayucos to join her family for a mini-vacation. As we traveled down the I-5 approaching Los Banos, we decided at the last minute to detour and take the scenic route along Highway 1. This added an additional 2 hours onto our drive, but it was so worth it.
The beauty of the California coast is truly a marvel and we took time to enjoy our surroundings. We stopped several times to take pictures and she even caught me doing a little photo shoot of my car! I’m no Alex, but I was certainly trying my best.
Moral of the story, just because a particular route is the quickest, it does not mean it is the most enjoyable or the right one to take. We arrived later than originally planned, I put more miles on my car, paid $5.40 for premium gas in Big Sur, yet neither of us had any regrets. It was the perfect beginning to an awesome weekend.
