One of the fun things about traveling without a set itinerary is that i can see something that catches my interest and head the truck that way. I liked the name Bodega Bay and pulled up in the harbor and got out and there were this beautiful pair of black oyster catchers right in front of me, up close. I have no idea where they would make their roosting and nesting rocks though because there were none there. Would love to know where they nest, lol.
also stopped at Ft Ross which i was fascinated by. Built originally by the Russian's to grow food for the Alaska colonies, it had an interesting history. Loved the chapel and the cliff that it sat on. Nice surprise stop. To read more about Fort Ross, go to fortress.com.
