If you are following the "Next" arrows, this page of photos is how far down the coast, leaving from San Francisco, I got in one day. So, this is where I put the sunsets. Note there is a big stretch near Big Sur with not a lot of services nearby. The next morning I was near Goleta and got a few pictures of the beach there.

Not many photos of Refugio Beach, but I did learn something. I saw this beach and wanted to take some pictures, so I got off the highway. When I got there, there was an entrance fee to the park (where you can go camping, BTW). I told the man at the gate I just wanted to take photos and he said he could give me a one hour pass to get in for free.

These photos were taken in 2004.
