The dogs are waiting till we are ready to leave. The know the ritual. Just before we are ready they want to get in the back of the truck.
We leave Napa on our way to the west coast.
When we get out of the hills, the Pacific Ocean is right in front of us.
What a beautiful sight, the seals are on the beach warming up in the early spring sun
On the cliffs we meet Jerry, he is making a small tour as his wife is disabled. Just to get out of the house for a few hour. Jerry is a friendly open minded guy who still enjoys life at his 85 years of age.
Highway 1, we were warned for the addicted scenery and they are right.
All along the 60 miles that we drove up to now along the coast, at every there is a new astonishing view.
The road follows the curves of the hills. Sometimes a normal road but also places where it narrows at elevations of approximately 300m
But at Anchor Bay Beach, elevation ZERO. Here we setup camp. With our Sterling, Arctic Fox combination this takes approximately 2 minutes. Ready … and now time for the beach.
Also here a magnificent scenery rolls out. White sand, black rocks and all alone for us at that moment.
Flora finds its way in the narrow gaps between the rocks.
The colours attract the ones attention
But not only the flora, also people enjoy a good wine in the setting sun.
The dogs behave so good so now it is time for Banya and Luna to enjoy the beach. Their play with the ball, chasing the birds end enjoying each-others company.
.Back at the truck we enjoy this view, the Pasivic Ocean at out feet.
Time for evening dinner asparagus, broccoli and….,.
… a good steak from the Whole Foods stores, a steak without hormones or antibiotics and almost tripe the price of the standard growth exploded steak what you mostly see in the shops.
