I think this is what you might picture when you think of Highway 1 in California. The ocean off to one side, some rolling mountains, and poppies growing along the roadside. It’s really not like this the whole stretch, but I did manage to find a spot with the poppies growing out of control.
I saw some odd things while on the road the other day. Three separate times, I saw someone peeing out in the open, including a woman who was probably 50-60 years old. No bush or car used for cover. Maybe she was unaware of the bathroom that was maybe a 3 minute walk away. Or, maybe I was in hippie territory. Yes, the Big Sur area has lots of
dirty hippies unique individuals.
At this spot, there was someone down by the bluff either painting or shooting with a tripod. I couldn’t tell because it was so far away. Whatever he was doing, was really pumping him up. I heard him scream, while throwing his fists in the air, at the ocean several times as some waves crashed against the rocks.
idiot gentleman was riding his bike in the middle of traffic, weaving back and forth between both lanes, seemingly trying to aggravate tourists. I saw him 3 different times throughout the day, and he was doing the same thing each time.
Don’t let the weirdos discourage you from visiting though. They make for some good stories.
