Rocky Pt. to Granite Cyn.

Beyond Bixby things start to look more upscale and Carmel By The Sea (if that’s a look). Just past the Rocky Point is this collection of nice looking places with great seaside locations an easy drive from the city. Is this still Big Sur? Some say yes, others no.

More homes cluster around the lovely Garrapata Creek Bridge where they’re mostly hidden from the highway by trees like the pic above.

Even more beautiful is the Granite Canyon bridge, where a small waterfall drops directly into the ocean in most tides.

Just beyond is the Marine Pollution Studies Laboratory (MPSL) where U.C. Davis is doing some cutting edge research on the water quality in this relatively pristine area.

Looking back toward Rocky Creek where we left off yesterday, you can see how many marvels we see in a slow progression that still takes only three minutes. Simple amazing.
