Ventura has some cool looking windswept trees.
The guys were impressed with the curvaceous mermaid.
We sure could do with some love again.
When you are in Santa Barbara and see a sign like this what can you do but…
follow the instructions.
A group of low riders drove into town and put on a good show cranking their cars up and down (hopping). The guy driving the tan car told me it was his very expensive hobby retrofitting his car but he loved driving it around.
Pink ice plant was blooming nicely on the Monterey peninsular.
We had a good bike ride along the coast, although it was very windy. Thank goodness for electric bikes.
We rode next to Pebble Beach golf course. There were plenty of people playing the course. It costs around $600 for a round of golf. Blimey!!!
We have seen people walking dogs, cats and even parrots, but this guy taking his donkey out for a stroll was a first.
Talk about a laid back dog.
Point Reys National Seashore just north of San Francisco was a lovely place to spend a day.
It was a shame the lighthouse was closed to visitors.
We all liked the lichen.
The beaches were packed with sunbathing sea lions.
There were quite a few Mules Ears blooming.
Wild Iris was starting to pop up.
We luckily had another sunny day and no fog so a trip to the Golden Gate Bridge was in order.
I found a broom washed up on the beach and started tidying up.
Walking around the old gun battery was fun. These doors are still pretty solid after 100 years of salty air.
A little more corrosion happening here.
Golden Gate Bridge looked tiny through this lookout.
We are in Oregon now. A quick visit with our good friends Calleen and Jon in Grants Pass. Thanks for the camping spot for both of our rigs guys. We are moving slowly up the state. Between warranty and insurance both Rv’s are getting a bit of TLC.
It is cold and rainy. Note to myself. Please stay south until the middle of May. It was so hot In Indio California when we left at the beginning of the month it was hard to think of COLD and RAINY weather giving us a beatdown. Our rain jackets have had more use over the last couple weeks than the last 2 years.
O.K. done with whining. We are getting closer to our lads. Are you ready for some mum cooking boys?
You know they are. We were in San Francisco a few years back in August, it was COLD!! Keep traveling safe!
We always feel lucky to visit SF in clear weather.
Great photos! Looks like yo are having a blast!
Great trip so far.
Very ready for Mum cooking, hugs, mojo!!
See you soon .
So much fun!!!
We love the California coast.
