Sunday, August 30th ~ Shoreline Highway
The wedding celebrations were over, friends and family were returning home, and the newlyweds were preparing to leave on their honeymoon.
Time for us to continue on our road trip…
Both Tim and I prefer taking smaller highways and byways instead of boring freeways whenever we have an option and can “take our time”. After leaving Los Gatos and the famous Silicon Valley, we headed north, driving through San Francisco, crossed the Golden Gate Bridge and entered into Marin County.
Turning back toward the coast, we chose Highway 1, also known as Shoreline Highway.
I had read a blog post recently that mentioned Glass Beach up in Fort Bragg. It had intrigued me, so that was to be our first stopping point.
The joke ended up on me, as taking the scenic route along the coastline meant miles and miles along narrow, very winding roads where twenty miles an hour was often top speed.
But the scenery was beautiful, the company pleasant, we were not in any hurry, so we just puttered along.
Along the way we checked out Muir Beach and Stinson Beach. We ended up spending Sunday night near Bodega Bay (where the Alfred Hitchcock movie “The Birds” was filmed). We still are several hours away from Glass Beach…
GRATITUDE MOMENT: Today I am grateful to have the luxury of taking our time. If we see somewhere we want to stop and explore, we do just that.
