2016 2.2 Adventure to San Francisco

Day trip to Muir Woods
Time flies when you're having fun, it's Thursday July 7th, 2016! Today we're kind of "taking the day off", as no travel or touring events are on our schedule. We move to Mill Valley in two days, to another Air BnB rental. Not really looking forward to the move, but am looking forward to the new adventure!

Abby and Scout in a big Redwood
Last week we ventured out for a day trip to Muir Woods National Monument. We've been there before but wanted to go back to see the Redwoods. Abby, Scout, Bunny, and I were on our own! Becca & Jesper went into the city so we dropped them off early at the ferry. We had looked up on the net regarding Muir Woods and they advised early arrival as parking was limited. So an early start it was for us, but it didn't matter, as we drove South on the 101, signs flashed that Muir Woods parking was full! We arrive and I drop the girls off at the front gate and I find a spot to park off of the road about a mile away. Oh well, I need the exercise! We walked to the end of the path, all the girls handed it well, stop back at the park store to have hotdogs for lunch. Nothing is cheap in California!
Abby & tour guide, taste testing the White

Last Sunday, Abby and I took some time for ourselves, driving up to Wine country. We found a tour online for the Benziger Family Winery. A tour on a tram, wine tasting, and about 3 hours later we're hitting the road heading North through Sonoma County. The number of vineyards are amazing! We conclude the day by driving over to California Hwy 1. Wish I had my motorcycle out here for that road! Lots of twists and turns!

The fourth of July is next and more time for Abby & John. Off we go to a Giants game at A,T, &T park. Our day begins by catching the ferry in Larkspur, which in turn takes us right to McCovey Bay at the stadium! What a beautiful field to watch a game at! I've been to about a 1/2 dozen stadiums, and by far this park is placed in the most beautiful setting as you'll see! Oh, for the views of the bay, ships, yachts, sailboats, and kayaks, all out enjoying the water! The park itself is a beautiful place to watch baseball!

Swimming with Scout

A day trip to the pool with Scout is enjoyable. Water temp is 81, air temp around 77, a sunny day just North of the Bay. We talk with a lady from San Francisco and she tells us she and her family came North for the day just to get some Sun! There seems to always be an overcast near the ocean.

Yesterday Abby, Scout, and me head North on CA 1, we spotted some seafood restaurants that we wanted to check out. We end up going to Nick's Cove. The setting was beautiful! The food was good, but not as good as anticipated.
