No internet for many days!
June 23rd 2017: Big Sur RV Campground – because of the landslide on Big Sur which had completely closed the road we had to make quite a big detour through Salinas in order to come down from North to South along the coast arriving eventually at the Campground just one mile from the land slip.
Wooded campground next to a river – no cell or internet service (again). But very friendly and we stayed a couple of nights. Not a lot else to say about the site itself. The drive along Big Sur which is as close to the coast as you can get has some dramatic views and the engineering to create the necessary bridges is pretty impressive.
June 25th 2017: Salinas Monterey KOA Campground – leaving Big Sur we went into Monterey with one destination being the Monterey Aquarium which is supposed to be excellent. However, on finding it was going to be $60 just to park plus the entrance fee we decided to give it a miss and head towards our next destination which was San Francisco with a stop on the way at this KOA campground.
Poor internet again and take a look at the pitch size! Barely room to squeeze in which just seems to be a feature of many of the campgrounds close to any thing popular. I understand maximising profit but minimising enjoyment is somewhat counter productive. Add to that the pathetic advertised free wifi – not a great experience.
