Before COVID wreaked havoc on travel early last year, I was able to meet my daughter in California for a trip that had been on my bucket list. It was a mother-daughter drive up the Pacific Coast Highway from San Diego to her home in Sacramento. We met in San Diego and rented a car for a five-day drive up the coast. It was one of the most picturesque journeys I’ve taken, filled with sweeping ocean views and rugged coastlines. While we drove north, the drive south would probably have been even more spectacular with unobstructed views of the coastline.
