Saying Goodbye…….and on up the California Coastline

Monday May 21st- Our last day visiting……tending to chores, laundry, oil change in the truck, and cooking up a pot of soup for supper with leftovers for the freezer for Laura and Dave…….making memories and not knowing how to say ‘goodbye’……

Laura began her classes for the Bar Exam Review today. She will be in class 4 hours each day, 5 days a week for the next 6 weeks, with 4 hours of homework and studying each night. The Bar Exam will be at the end of July, so keep her in your prayers.

Knowing that Laura and Dave will be able to join us for 2 weeks in Alaska after the Bar Exam makes the leaving a bit easier……just a bit. But it is hard…hard to hug goodbye and head back to our camper, then get up and drive off in the morning.  And, yes Laura, I know that we could all move to California….   ;- ) We love you guys and really appreciate the hospitality and wonderful visit. Study hard….and see you soon……

Tuesday May 22nd- We packed up the camper and drove north from Oakland on Hwy 101, along some of the same road that we drove going canoeing on the Russian River. We enjoyed some stunning scenery as we drove through the Sonoma Valley and wine country.  Then we headed west on Hwy 128, through hills and curves and redwood forests and vineyards and such beauty!

We are staying at Van Damme State Park, just a few miles south of Mendocino.


The coastline is beautiful….grassy meadow giving way to rocky cliffs….


Waves crashing over the rocks……
