We followed SH 1 the entire way today. We wound inland slightly at times. We had fields with cows on the left, and the ocean on the right. Amazing! Otherwise, we followed the coast. The temps started at 52 but quickly warmed up to a sunny 75. It is the first day we were able to shed our warm clothes. Sure is great to have a sag to carry them for us.
The roads were much better, too...almost no chip seal. Along the way there was the smell of licorice plant, ocean, and eucalyptus trees. Oh yes, and some cow smells occasionally.
We are staying at a beautiful place today, 'The Breaker Inn.' Many of us have our own room tonight (a treat!). Each of the rooms have a theme of a country or US state...I have Ireland! The room decorations look like a B&B in Ireland.
Tomorrow is a shorter day into Bodega Bay, CA. (49 miles), with an estimated 3,078 ft of climb.
