My wife and I (with a little help from the dog) got the 19 ready and made our first trip of the season last week. We stayed at Bodega Dunes Campground, Sonoma Coast State Beach. Nice place, well spaced sites, but getting a bit tatty, reflecting California's finances. There's lots to see and do in the area, and for the most part the weather was good. We did have one evening of substantial rain, and it was sweet being warm, comfy and dry, with the bikes and gear tucked under the awning. The local fresh seafood market is excellent, also. Spring and fall are good times to go -- clearer weather for the most part, and less busy. We're thinking of making it an annual trip.
