Ready to go before the rain came – but it did come and much of the trip was in the rain – hey I am in the Northwest and what else should I expect.
We did get to drive through the Avenue of the Giants Scenic Byway – parallel road to 101 Interstate that was narrow and went right through the old growth of the Redwoods – wow! 31 miles of all scenic pleasure.
There was lots of things to see and do along the Avenue of the Giants but due to driving thru with the motorhome we didn’t have enough room to stop and see.
Then the big decision – do I continue to take 101 Interstate or do I venture off to SR 1 along the coast – no question – let’s go for the coast. A very winding and narrow road over the mountains and thru the woods to the coast. It was exciting to go this way.
Even along the coast it was winding and over the hills we go.
Arrived at Hidden Pines RV Park and got set up. Small campground with a few RV sites for daily travelers – the rest was fulltime people. Gravel road and grass sites but it’s only for one night.
The owner was a mushroom hunter – which must be big in this area – even had classes you could take – and Brenda bought some mushrooms for a risotto later on.
We then took off for an ocean view.
And then to Glass Beach and even found some glass in the beach sand. What a view!
We did visit the farmer’s market and purchased some fresh produce.
And then we found North Coast Brewery in town and had one.
Thursday is off to Willits, California for a Skunk Train ride.
