Partington to Lafler

After the wonders of McWay, mellows out to the routine miracles of Big Sur again. Drivers who slow down and let the hordes pass might notice Partington Cove where you can walk down to the rocky beach and scramble or kayak for a look at the sea caves on the right.

Atop the point on the left is another creative Big Sur home, far from the suburban tract designs.

If you’re not an otter spotter, next along this California Sea Otter State Game Refuge comes Torre Canyon where valiant firefighters managed to spare the watershed trees.

Sprawling out toward the point are these homes with a private path down to a small beach near where the creek carved a deep notch to the sea.

If you kept eyes on the road and whizzed past all that without noticing, you might stop to catch your breath at Lafler Canyon.

Looking like giant wine barrels, the buildings here house the Coast Gallery & Cafe with bright red rooftop umbrellas to signal tables where you can coast in to relax and enjoy the view.
