In early July, we were invited to visit the beautiful seaside town of Monterey in California where the Emmy-nominated HBO series Big Little Lies was filmed. If you’ve seen all the episodes in the mini-series, you’ll recognize the backdrop as Jane, Madeline and Celeste go running on the beach, get together for coffee at Blue Blues Café or the infamous Bixby Bridge as seen in the opening credits. Most of the scenes were filmed in Monterey, Pacific Grove, Carmel Highlands and Big Sur. If Monterey wasn’t on your must-see list, it sure will be now.
