Monterey Bay hotel for 2 nights and then Best western Peppertree in Santa Barbara for one night before moving onto LA. All paid for now I am afraid. We were going to drive down to Gorda from Monterey and return for our second night. Hearing this today we might head over to Carmel for the day instead...knowing our luck they will open the road on August the 1st....
