Trip Report, going south

5 days so far following the Oregon Coast. The weather is not the best, raining and windy.

Claude, Great choice of route. Oregon and California coasts are very dramatic. Drive slow (You won't have much an option) and enjoy the view. If you have time, don't miss North Coast Brewery in Fort Bragg. You can get a taster flight of 16 brews. Not a loser in the bunch. Cheers

A must see in Fort Bragg: Glass Beach! At low tide you can see all manner of sea life clinging to the rocks in addition to the beach at Elm St & Old Haul Rd.

I will be interested in hearing where you stay as you get near to SF. Our daughters live in the Bay Area, we hope to visit them once we get our 21, and stay in the Escape, but are not sure of where we could/would do that and still be able to visit with them in the East Bay area.

Hi Mary,

You may want to try Dell Valle Regional Park in Livermore. It's on the outskirts of the East Bay and easy travel distance to the metropolitan areas. You'll get a taste of the "Golden Hills" of California. We go here when we take our grandchildren for an outing. It has nice trails, fishing, kayaking, wind surfing, boating and local wildlife. On one hike we saw a flock of about 100 wild turkeys in one tree.

Claude probably had better get going South. The weather really looks bad for Washington and Oregon. To all of our friends up there, take care. Loren
