On 10/7, we went up to Sather tower in UC berkeley. It’s a bell tower, with clocks on its four faces, on the University of California, Berkeley campus, more commonly known as The Campanile for its resemblance to the Campanile di San Marco in Venice. It is the university’s most recognizable symbol.
During the weekend, 9 of us took a road trip down to Big Sur, a rugged stretch of California’s central coast between Carmel and San Simeon. Bordered to the east by the Santa Lucia Mountains and the west by the Pacific Ocean, it’s traversed by narrow, 2-lane State Route 1, known for winding turns, seaside cliffs and views of the often-misty coastline. The sparsely populated region has numerous state parks for hiking, camping and beachcombing.
We also drove down to Pfeiffer Beach. The route to this beach is extremely narrow with no street lights or proper sign, nonetheless, we were careful and made it to this beautiful beach.
