I’ve driven by this bridge what feels like hundreds of times and always wanted to stop. This time we had the time and thought it looked like a fun place for our son to play in the sand. Homeless people aside it is a gorgeous spot with the river spilling into the ocean and walkers crossing the high bridge. I definitely plan on coming back and spending more time in this great spot. I’ll just try and ignore the tsunami zone signs around and keep my fingers crossed the big one won’t hit!
***On another note: I hope everyone is hanging in there during this time of isolation and uncertainty. These photos were taken from a recent trip prior to the California-wide shelter-in-place restrictions. I hope in sharing them I can help make you smile for even a moment. Take good care everyone.
I have been camping for years now near Bodega Bay, California in the Sonoma Coast State Park area. Just north of that up the famed California Highway 1 is a little seaside town called Jenner. Some friends bought a small piece of property and are building a “tiny home” on it. They recently invited us up for a visit and we took them up on it. The drive from Sacramento took us through Santa Rosa and along the Russian River along Hwy 166 until the road dead ends in to the coast. From there you head north on a dizzyingly windy road past Jenner towards Stillwater Cove on Hwy 1. Mother Nature was kind to us providing us with a glorious view of the ocean and the rocky coastline saving her fog and haze for another day. Once we made it to the property we set out for a brisk fern lined walk through the oaks and redwoods mushroom spotting along the way.
Friends, its days like this that remind me why I live in California.
