Mar 7, 2012 - Good weather continues

We are blessed with gorgeous sunny days and are thankful, since it could just as easily have been foggy and cold. We are NOT complaining about the wind, although it continues to challenge our desires for outdoor picnics. Late in the morning, we left Half Moon Bay with a strong resolution to return and explore a little. Hard to do without a car. Even though our RV is nimble, it still can be awkward to whip in here or dash in over there. But it looks like a lovely place with lots of beaches and birding ops. Not far out of HMB we decided to...

Pacific Coast 2009

Apr 29, 2009 - Hwy 1-north of San Francisco

OMG!!!! I thought today was going to be an easy drive up the coast to Point Reyes National Seashore. Everything I've seen or read said that the scenery here was going to be just gorgeous so it would be worth going out of the way to get there. WEEEEELLLLLL! It was just after we crossed the Golden Gate Bridge that we saw the sign that said "vehicles over 35feet not advised". Hey buddy, that sign was just a little late. There was no turning back---I mean that literally--there was no where to turn our big ass fifth-wheel around and find...
