The 17-Mile Drive


It one of most famous scenic drives in the world- The 17-mile drive that goes through Pebble Beach and Pacific Grove on the Monterey Peninsula that takes you through mansions, famous golf courses and the California Shoreline:

Bird Rock 

The Lone Cypress. It is believed to have been seeded in 1750 and the earliest known paintings and photographs date back to the 1880's. It is between the Cypress Point Club and the Pebble Beach Golf Links which are two of the world's best known golf courses. A drawing of the tree was registered as the trademark of the Pebble Beach Company in 1919.

The 17-Mile Drive is one of the most amazing places I have ever been to. The beauty is so breathtaking and amazing. 


  1. Looks like a really nice landscape and the house would have a good view.

  2. Beautiful photos and fantastic views Patrick :-)

    Have a scenictastical week 👍

  3. I love the roof because it looks like foam Post-its or mosaics.

  4. It's clearly famous for a reason! Delightful pics.

  5. That was so beautiful! We got lost coming down and it was getting dark...that part was a little nerve wracking!

  6. Your pictures are fabulous as always, Patrick! I adore the 17 Mile Drive! It's one of my favourite drives anywhere. I even wrote a blog post on it years ago. I still remember having a Mint Julep at Pebble Beach overlooking the 18th hole on our first visit.

  7. That's a gorgeous drive!

    Thanks for sharing your link at My Corner of the World this week!

  8. Absolutely gorgeous! I love all of these photos.
