Labor Day Story

Well, We made it the entire weekend without breaking down or killing each other. Friday evening we packed up the Westy and headed up to Bodega Bay, where we arrived at 1:15am and setup camp overlooking the ocean.

We woke at the crack of dawn, as that particular parking area seems to be where the locals go surfing at daylight. We slowly meandered our way up CA-1 to Ft. Bragg, stopping along the way to nap at a beach for hours.

Saturday night’s stay was in Humboldt Redwoods State Park, just north of where CA-1 and US-101 meet up. We didn’t arrive until after dark, so no pictures.
Sunday night we got really lucky (at Erin’s persistence to Not stay at the KOA!) and found a great spot (#15) at Patrick’s Point S.P. north of Arcata

After a great breakfast of fresh blackberry pancakes, we packed up Monday morning and headed south for work. Stopping in Leggett to drive (attempt) through the redwood tree seemed like a good touristy thing to do. The VW might have made it if the tires were more deflated.

It was a great relaxing weekend all-in-all! And Yup, that is a giant husky head hat 🙂
