Weekly Photo Challenge – Pebble Beach – Lone Cypress Tree


photo

 

This photograph I had taken on our trip up north to visit Pebble Beach and Monterey, California.  The tree is called the Lone Cypress Tree it is over 200 years old and it is one of the official symbol of Pebble Beach. I let my husband drive with the top down through the 17 mile drive on this scenic road through Pacific Grove and Pebble Beach on the Monterey Peninsula.  The route is beautiful and very gorgeous and you pass by many mansions and beautiful golf courses.  We stayed in Carmel Valley and visited my former boss at the Inn at Spanish Bay and had lunch with Rod there.  It was so beautiful.  This part of Northern California is very rugged with rolling sand dunes and blistering winds.  Even though our trip was in August, the weather can be unpredictable and fog can roll in at dusk. 001_25
