Bodega Bay

After arriving in Santa Rosa and getting settled in at Sonoma County Fairground and RV park, we headed out to Bodego Bay at Bodega Head.  What a beautiful place!  Of course, it was super windy, but the view was amazing!  We explored the shoreline a bit, then walked up along the high cliffs to watch the sunset.  It was windy enough that we didn't stay as long as we should have to see the spectacular colors; we saw those on the drive back instead.  We also stopped at a little cafe on the way back that had free chowder tasting--salmon chowder, clam chowder (a first for me), and a carrot-tomato soup that was yummy.

Our kids' first view of the Pacific Ocean

Gathering seashells makes her so happy!

The girls insisted this made a very soft bed.
Getting dark already; why does the sun have to go away so early?
Just the beginnings of color

I so badly want to go to Bodega Bay!! We didn't have time while we were in CA. I saw you are going to Simi Valley. Our sticks and bricks house is in Ventura, very near Simi. It's a great place, have a wonderful time!
