Sometimes money can do good things. Pebble Beach , the ritzy golf-centric enclave on the central coast of California clearly has the funds to take care of the 5star environment , and do it well. It costs 9.75 to do the 17 mile drive-I did it twice in the space of three days. The stuff I saw was better than a 12 dollar movie or a 50 dollar ball game. As I drove I thought about living behind high walls with Burma Shave style signage touting the security system; huge houses with incredible views and big staffs. I'll take the view. That's all.
This rocky knoll is being restored with natives- signage politely asks you to stay off this environmentally sensitive area.
Our native Erigeron.. the only plant I could identify.
I snuck onto the golf course (Spyglass) and took this shot.
Another please-keep-off area.
