My long weekend in Big Sur was absolutely lovely, and I'm dying to write more about it. However, I've got a lot going on this week, both at work and outside, and I suspect that I shall spend more time this week focused on the things that pay the bills (my job) and the things that keep me sane (soccer, running, book group . . . you get the idea) than on a vacation update. Anyway, here's a quick taste, McWay Falls in Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park. Bonus points to anyone who can tell me why the water in Big Sur looks so turquoise and tropical compared to everywhere else in California.
