Photo of the Day: McWay Falls, Big Sur, California

Of the three or four waterfalls in Big Sur, McWay Falls in Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park may be the most picturesque. Just a brief (couple minutes) walk from the highway, this elegant waterfall drops onto a secluded beach right on the coast of the Pacific Ocean. Looking at this photo makes me want to go back to Big Sur. It also reminds me of one of the most unusual places to find excellently prepared calamari steak. The dining room of the Big Sur Lodge in the Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park (not the same park as "Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park" and not the same lodge as the "Big Sur River Lodge") served a remarkable calamari that was breaded in panko and flash fried to perfection. The executive chef isn't there anymore and, looking at the menu, they no longer serve the calamari.
