A Bit of Road Trippin’

Ami and I took a little road trip Thursday, Friday and Saturday up the California coast. Originally we had planned to make it all the way up to Portland, but she got a job interview on Thursday at the Pacifica School District, so we cut our trip short. We went up CA-1 to Eureka, stopping in Muir Woods, Gualala (where we spent a night at a very cute B&B, with an ocean view!), Mendocino and finally Eureka. On the way down, we took the 101 thru Avenue of the Giants and stopped for some wine tasting in Napa (bought 3 bottles, the 99 Beringer Alluviam Red (my choice), the 01 Beringer White Zin (Ami’s choice), and something else I can’t remember). All in all it was a very fun trip. The rain on the 1 was a headache, which caused us to slow our pace down so we didn’t make it all the way up to the California-Oregon border as planned, but nonetheless, fully enjoyable. Pictures are here for: day 1, day 2, day 3.
