Danny put me in charge of coming up with something fun to do for our Anniversary Trip- His only request....lets stay close to home.
Here is my idea-
Drive Hwy 1 along the coast in a VW van.... come what may!
This will be our ride for our little Anniversary getaway. We were married in April of 1978....and how fun that our rented ride is a 1978 VW camper van.
and she also has a name Nalu lm'i.
We are planning a trip from LA to Big Sur and back on HWY 1....I've been pinning away so we don't miss anything. (if you know of any place that we shouldn't miss, please let me know)
Here is my "Adventure" list of things to do
- visit a lighthouse
- fly a kite and send off sky lanterns over the beach at night.
- Camp next to the beach
- Find Pirates tower
- build a bonfire on the beach
- bike on the coastal pathways
- Moonstone beach
- glass beach
- McWay falls
- Eat at Miracle burgers / our goal is to eat at only restaurants we have never heard of before.
Our little vintage VW has an ice box and stove....so I see us using that a lot.
I also plan to bring back a little 70's style- (wish I had saved some of my things...oh, wait....maybe not, I was a lot smaller back then =)
I want to dress the part, I mean really, if you are driving around in a 1978 VW van you don't want to miss that opportunity ... I don't want to go all 1970 hippy crazy....more of a chic 2015 boho style
(by the way I have these pieces to wear =)

Plus I ordered a few maxi skirts from my Daughter. Lularoe by Shannon
Yep, I'm pretty excited.
Half the fun is in the planning, right?!
hoping to see our VW parked there. =)
So tell me...where should we stop, what should we do?
Share your favorite places.
Note to our son Kent- We will not do drugs =)
