We have absolutely fallen in love with this part of California. There is so much to do and see, I can hardly keep up with the journal updates. :-)
We have been checking out all the campgrounds in the area, hoping to return again later for at least a month. The campground we are in only allows a two week stay. We were out looking at the campgrounds in the Russian River area today. We decided to drive a bit more and ran right into one of the most beautiful areas we have ever seen. It is called the Sonoma Coast State Beach.
Our first stop was Goat Rock Beach. Jerry and I both could not believe our eyes. It is one of the most breathtaking views we have ever seen. We are going back for a picnic in the area with binoculars just to sit and look.
It was a bit foggy and my pictures did not capture all the beauty, but they will give you a good idea. The whole stretch of beaches in the area are outstanding. We saw some homes literally sliding down into the ocean. They were beautiful homes and I know it has to be heartbreaking for the owners. We highly recommend this scenic drive to anyone in the area. It was incredible!! Check back later for more from California.
