I’m planning a road trip with my friend Honora down Highway One along the California coast. We’ll start in Carmel and travel to Big Sur, San Simeon, Morro Bay, Pismo Beach, Santa Barbara, and the Channel Islands. The trip was my idea. I’ve never driven south of Carmel along Highway One and I’m excited but it’s a trip that will test my propensity toward acrophobia. In many places along the route the narrow highway snakes atop steep cliffs that loom over the Pacific Ocean. Just thinking about driving this road puts my heart in my throat. But I know I can do it. So, with this trip, I will be expanding my horizons and conquering some fears. We’re not leaving until after Labor Day, so I at least have 6 months to steel my nerves.
