National Parks Tour travel blog

This was a lovely day! We started in leisurely fashion; we drove most of the morning along the coast, stopping at just about every turnout or vista point we came to. Sam took photos like they were going out of style. Even the drive across the mountains wasn’t bad, although there was not enough straight road in one place to make a city block! It was twenty-two miles of one curve after another. Fortunately the traffic was very light and “turnouts” were available frequently so that we could pull aside and let the stack of cars behind us go by. The RV negotiates the twists and turns very well, but a sports car it is not, and it is much slower than many of the autos want to go.

Just before we left the coast behind, we found a lovely place to stop for lunch. Sam got out the folding chairs and put them in the sun where the RV blocked the wind; I made sandwiches and fruit plates and took them out and we had a picnic overlooking the ocean.

The afternoon’s drive was not bad: a couple of hours on Highway 101, and we are now settled for the night in McKinleyville, California.
