Tim and I (and Pilot and Comet) took a week to drive down the coast to California. It was a beautiful escape that gently nudged us out of our routine and gave us a great opportunity to unwind and relax.
We left on Labor Day and drove across Oregon to have lunch in Florence and then down to Bandon. We stayed near several sea stacks and that evening took the dogs for along walk on the beach.
Trinidad is beautiful.
Then we drove down to Mendocino, taking the "Avenue of the Giants" to get there---a beautiful road chock full of Redwoods. We took a short hike and saw them 'close up' which is almost impossible as they are so tall:
See Tim's red shirt there at the bottom?
Mendocino was fun---we took a sea kayak trip through sea caves which was, truly, the most fun I've ever had kayaking.
And there was yarn, but that is for another day.
