Moss Landing CA, right in the middle of the curve of Monterey Bay. Stay at the KOA, talk to the managers John & Jaye and tell them Bruce & Mary Lou sent you. There is a whale watch boat captain lives on property and runs great trips out to the bay. This time of year they are seeing blue whales! Eat at Phil's restaurant, best seafood I have ever eaten. The seafood pasta dishes can be easily shared between 2 people.
x2 on avoiding the PCH south of Carmel. Not a good road for a MH or trailer. You'll have seen plenty of spectacular coastline by then. We drove the coast from Monterey to Oregon last month and had no problems.
