Dreamin’ California’s Coast – Malibu to Big Sur

Joseph and Julie are California Dreamin’ as they celebrate their anniversary along the state’s romantic coast. They join up with a coastal tour which begins in Southern California in their hometown of Topanga and then follows the golden state’s winding shoreline north to Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo and to the edge of the Big Sur. Highlights of their adventure include strolling through the vineyards of Malibu’s little-known, but star-studded wineries, pedaling along the beach in Santa Barbara and wine sampling, oyster shucking and feasting on barbeque in San Luis Obispo County. California Dreamin’ takes on new meaning when they imagine life among the splendor that is Hearst Castle in San Simeon – where the rich and famous once played at being common folk. From a lookout along the Big Sur coast they watch the sun dramatically set on their idyllic adventure.
