Foggy in a weather sense. I was ready to go before most of El Granada. North to the Russian River via the Jewel that is San Francisco. Foggy in the City by the Bay though. Even so, the Golden Gate is quite a sight. Much more fun to walk across than drive, but today was a drive.
North along Hwy 1 leads through many little towns full of character and characters who like oysters. Enough oysters to make an industry. We had brunch at Rocker Oysterfellers. As most California food, really tasty. Thats MJ with the hat and our friend Jenny.
Further North on the Sonoma County coast. Could watch for hours, but if I did that at every stop, this would be a one year sabbatical.
Final destination was Monte Rio, a little town on the Russian River where we will just sit for a couple of days..... sitting interspersed with some winery exploration. Russian River is known for its Chardonnay and MJ is known for her love of Chardonnay.
Monte Rio is mosty an intersection... with inns and small businesses scattered through the redwoods. Cool, foggy, just plain relaxing.
