Nepenthe Blue Jay

While in Big Sur we stopped at Nepenthe for lunch. The view is beautiful…or so I understand it to be. Because of the fog we had the day we were there we only got to see glimpses of it. Nepenthe Restaurant, which sits high above the Pacific Ocean in the Santa Lucia mountains, is a popular spot. It was quite busy when we got there so instead of a table we opted for the first thing that was available which was seats on the terrace overlooking the Pacific. When out food came so did the Blue Jays. Do you know what this one is doing? Looking intently at my french fries…waiting for me to turn away so that he could steal one. Actually they don’t wait. They’re quite bold and one swooped in on my neighbours french fries and helped himself.

    I could have written this exact post – I was there on 9.9.13. Same fog situation, same restaurant, same seating, same bluejay stealing my neighbor’s french fry. Not kidding. Went on to San Luis Obispo with the intention of going to Morro bay too but never made it there. At least I can look at your gorgeous shots of the bay and the rock!

    • Thank you so much for visiting Amy and for your comments. You must have felt the same disappointment I did with all that fog. That just means you have to go back 🙂
