Napa & Big Sur - California Part 1

I am currently on a 10 day trip along the California's Pacific Coast Highway, here's a couple photos from the first two stops. Napa and then Big Sur. Napa was quiet, and the hotel was stunning, Hotel Bardessono. I would highly recommend visiting Francis Ford Coppola's winery if you ever get the chance to go to Napa. He has tonnes of memorabilia there from all his films... for those who don't know who he is, I'll give you a clue, The Godfather, now google him! 
The drive from Napa to Big Sur took about 4 hours but it was a pretty journey along the coastline, I don't get much of that in NYC! I am not sure I'd return to Big Sur, although it is very scenic the hotel quality is lacking. I was very lucky to stay at the prestigious Post Ranch Inn - the celeb hot spot - but little did I know it would be a glorified camping site. No TVs in the rooms, no cereal at breakfast?! What is that about! So, I spent the day at the Monetary Bay Aquarium, I captured some amazing jellyfish photos! (They'll be up soon in my Californian Wildlife post). Next on the journey, Laguna, Disney, Palm Springs & LA.
