How have I lived in California for 31 years and never been to Big Sur?
That is what I asked myself as we headed down Highway 1 on a crystal clear day in February.

The cliffs, green pastures and gorgeous blue ocean made me think of Ireland, or how I imagine it to be.
Our destination: The legendary Ventana Inn and Spa, nestled in the redwoods, overlooking the ocean in Big Sur.
