May 18, 2012 - Sonoma Coast

We have absolutely fallen in love with this part of California. There is so much to do and see, I can hardly keep up with the journal updates. :-) We have been checking out all the campgrounds in the area, hoping to return again later for at least a month. The campground we are in only allows a two week stay. We were out looking at the campgrounds in the Russian River area today. We decided to drive a bit more and ran right into one of the most beautiful areas we have ever seen. It is called the Sonoma Coast State Beach. Our first stop was...

Jenner is a small hamlet on Coastal 1 at the mouth of the Russian River where it empties into the pacific.

The Russian twists and turns through the lush and scenic Alexander Valley. It is the site of many famed wineries and resorts. Many quaint old towns lie...

We then went to visit our dear friends Marty Hales and Jim McCarrow at their cabin on the Russian River delta near Jenner, CA. Marty and I worked...

Sep 26, 2007 - Duncans Mills, CA

Not the best night sleep I have ever had, but we are back on the road and have great hopes for a quieter night tonight. Not too far to go today, but lots of California back roads, this means narrow and windy; a little more difficult when you are pulling a 25 foot trailer. We headed west when we reached Williams, CA and the wound are way around Clear Lake and then on down to Healdsburg, where we turned west and headed for the coast. We landed in Duncan Mills (a tiny little town near the coast right on the Russian River) and found our RV...
