I am catching up on all the awesome places we have visited in the last few days. We took our car and drove down CA Highway One. You would not want to drive your RV on this road, trust me. :-) It has very narrow roads with lots of curves. It is a spectacular drive and not to be missed, but do it in your car.

Our first stop was the Point Arena Lighthouse. This is one of the tallest lighthouses on the Pacific Coast. The movie, "Forever Young," was filmed in part here. They showed views of the lighthouse from a distance when he landed the plane in the field across from the lighthouse. It is an incredible area with huge rocks and crashing waves.

Our next stop was Mendocino. I took a ton of pictures to show you the old houses in the area. A lot of movies and television shows are filmed here. I took a picture of the Blair House on Little Lake Road, which was featured on the show "Murder She Wrote." We enjoyed our visit much and would highly recommend it. More later from California.
