The day before my parents left we took a drive out to Big Basin Redwood Park about an hour or less from here. We hadn't been there before, there was an easy loop trail that we could walk on to see some of the largest trees I've ever seen.

Then we drove the back way to Santa Cruz, had some lunch and drove along the coast North towards Half Moon Bay.
We stopped at this lighthouse which is now a hostel.
