California Coast to Dunnigan
March 4, 2009
We had breakfast in Watsonville, having taken a motel room within walking distance of the Norma's Family Restaurant that we enjoyed so much yesterday. It was a mixture of anglo and spanish and everyone knew each other - a real community restaurant.
We headed out through Santa Cruz and up the coast on Hwy 1, stopping in Davenport again for a great piece of blackberry pie.
We again visited the Pigeon Point Lighthouse.
This is the road along the coast leading to the lighthouse, taken from the grounds of the lighthouse.
We got good views of the city of San Francisco from the bridge.
There were also nice views of Alcatraz out in the San Francisco Bay.
It's hard to stop taking pictures of the spectacular Golden Gate Bridge, but with this shot we quit and drove on across the bridge.
I looked for the road that gave such good views of the Golden Gate Bridge from above on the highland, but didn't find it. Instead we drove along Hwy 1 to Tamalpais State Park and enjoyed the wonderful views of the coast from up at a point something like Muir Overlook.
You could see back toward San Franciso and northwesterly along the rugged coast.
We proceeded toward the State Park before backtracking and heading toward Dunnigan.
Wanda and Danny came over to our motel room in Dunnigan and we had a visit and made some plans for tomorrow.
