Pacific Coast Highway (Highway 1)

When we drove down from Ventura all the way south we decided to go over the PCH since we’ve never experienced the scenery above Malibu. It was the most beautiful ride!

I really hope you get not bored since I always post photos of beaches and harbors. But if you have ever been to the west coast (or probably any coast) there is such a special atmosphere, the wideness of the ocean the calming and relaxing sound of the waves, and the energizing power of the sun. Also, nature is always exciting to me. Over here it is so normal that pelicans are passing by in their formations over and over again, or they are gliding only inches above the ocean surface in order to look out for some fish. Then out of the blue dolphins surface and make their way along the coast. Somewhere you hear seals bark, see them diving, or even waving their fin – which is not a waving at all but some kind of charging themselves with sunlight and warmth. But also watching hummingbirds speeding, stopping, and speeding on are no curiosity. This is what I love about the west coast: This all seems to appear as an ordinary part of it all and I cherish the fact to no end that it is ordinary. Isn’t it special that some things are so special to some of us and at the same time it makes you so happy that be part of it right because they are treated like the most common thing? I don’t know if you get me, but this really is a phenomenon to me. Oh well, while writing this I feel like transferred to the places I love so much. But now I want to take you to another nice place.

For now, enjoy the ride!


Here we arrived at the northern part of Malibu. I did not remember that Malibu is that big!


One of my favorite animals appeared right in front of us. IMG_4838


For what reason ever we did not obey our GPS but remained on the a little road along the coast and… found the most spectacular ocean view I have ever seen. 20141028_141642

From Point Dume there is a more than 300Β° view over the pacific ocean. It was absolutely mind-blowing. Whenever I am near the upper end of Malibu I will go there again. IMG_4845


I hope you enjoyed the view!

In Love and Light!

Absolutely stunning – what gorgeous scenery. Been to San Francisco and explored a little bit many years ago but never this part of California, it sounds amazing. The chance of spotting some of that wildlife as well would be very exciting!

California is full of varieties like romantic sunsets and wide beaches, heavy waves, gorgeous cliffs, desert, mountains… I only explored a little part. Next time my husband and I also want to start in San Francisco. So we want to discover the north and you should definitely visit the southern part. It’s all worthwhile!

It is every time again and again. Can’t get enough! Perhaps a reason for you to consider a west coast vacation with your family… The boys might like the big waves πŸ˜‰


Cruising down the PacCoast Highway was one of the best memories I have of California. It was an awesome experience. Thanks for sharing your photos of your trip. They’re beautiful!
