The first day was spent driving to Angwin, arriving quite late at night. The next day, we went with Auntie Plerm and Uncle Michael on different tours—The Castle, Sepay olive oil company, Budweiser factory, and Jelly Belly. After some shopping and dinner, we went to the Chun’s place.
Bryce, Kara, Alice, and I headed into the backcountry at Point Reyes National Seashore. The first day, we hiked from Bear Valley Ranger Station to Sky Camp. The next day took us down to the beach, where we arrived at Coast Camp shortly after noon. We napped away most of the afternoon. Saturday’s hike was along the bluffs above the coast. This was the longest day with about eight miles. Birds filled the meadow above Wildcat Camp. Being not so windy, this was the warmest of the nights. For the last day, we hiked out to our car back at the Bear Valley Ranger Station and drove back to Santa Rosa.
We had a good stay with the Chuns in Santa Rosa, recovering, cleaning, organizing, eating, sharing stories. The drive home was smooth except for the portion between the Grapevine and the 210 Interchange, where I-5 became like a parking lot. Anyways, it’s good to be home after an amazing week.
