Everything looks so good! I hope I can drive up to Big Sur sometime soon, I've been wanting to try out Big Sur Bakery for a while now. And of course take in the beautiful scenery.

What I get from this post is this: Matt has overcome his childhood problem with hollandaise sauce.

Beautiful pictures!

Wonderful pictures. We're not sure what Matt is doing on Highway 1. Amelia's so graceful in picture 9. We bet she could execute the Panchecko. Was Matt forced to eat the Hollandaise?

Matthew said...

After 16 years, I can eat hollandaise again. I'm back!

Beautiful photos. Big Sur is my favorite place in California and try to visit every chance I get. I'd recognized that dish from Deetjen's anywhere! I always order that, delicious. I wish I was at Big Sur Bakery right now!

In college we called them eggs bookman because Matt ate eggs Benedict every day.

This is a true story.

Nina said...

Those pictures are fabulous. They really capture the beauty and deliciousness of Big Sur. We were there in January and had a great time. Enjoy!
