One of the best ways to go from Monterey to Los Angeles is for the coast called Big Sur, this part of 140 kms it is amazing with some cliffs and curvy roads ,wonderful to enjoy stopping in the places to see the landscape and the colour of the sea, actually when I went it was August, there was some fires around, how can be induced for people? I was also surprised when I realised there where some posters encouraging and congratulating the firefighters.
After waking up in Visalia, I went direction to Carmel by the Sea, before I stopped in Monterey where there is his famous bay and I could take some pictures of it. The travel from Visalia to Monterey it took about 4-5 hours, are approximately 324 kms.
In Carmel by the Sea, I was surprised because you could see all the houses in harmony, all of them were beautiful and astonishing with the beautiful beach and his brave sea. After having, a walk around I went to sleep in a beautiful hotel called SVENDSGAARD´S INN. the hotel was fantastic.
There is a place in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park that is heaven for Bay Area inline skaters and roller skaters who like to boogie to the funky beat on wheels. The area is called, “Skatin’ Place”. It is located at 6th Avenue and Kennedy Drive in the park. It has been officially dedicated and recognized as the home for outdoor roller skating in the San Francisco.
Skaters have been rollin’ here since the roller disco days of 1979 when it was common to see 15,000 to 20,000 people flocking to the park to skate on Sundays when there are no cars. The closed roads become a safe recreational paradise for runners, walkers, skaters, cyclists and others who were looking to escape the pressures of the fast paced city lifestyle and enjoy themselves in a lush, green, sylvan park environment. It was and still to this day is an absolutely wonderful scene and a great way to spend the day in San Francisco. I loved it.
