April 20, Fort Bragg CA to Petuluma CA

Today the weather was tremendous, the nicest weather we have experienced since we bought Scout. In addition there was exceptionally high surf along the whole coast which just added to the views along the PCH.

The drive today was slow but, really beautiful. The combination of the bluff top views and the surf made for a fun drive. Scout handled the twists and turns of PCH very well and we were rarely the slowest vehicle on the road, turned a couple of heads when we would catch up with cars moving slower than we were along the highway. It was a really happy day for Ton as in addition to the beautiful weather, the wildflowers were out at all of our stops. I am going to let Ton’s pictures tell the story of the day visually.

In Gold Beach we met a Chinese couple who had a rental RV, we did not speak much with them beyond helping the husband find the place to check in as their English was limited. Yesterday we saw them a couple of times and today when pulled off in Bodega Bay I looked up to see the wife waving at me as they drove by.

After checking in at the Coast Guard base in Petuluma for the night, Ton pointed out that Lagunitas Brewery was located in Petuluma so we were off. Good Beer, Good Weather, and a Good Band made for an enjoyable night and the end to a great day.
