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.
