What a great place, had a beautiful big room with king bed, gas open fire place, fridge, microwave, balcony. Loved it.! Highly recommend. Gentleman on front desk was welcoming and helpful, with a smile. Which I found rare to see in the USA!

... On the way to Fort Bragg: After crossing the Golden Gate Bridge and viewing it from the north end, we toured through Sausalito, CA. This is a beautiful and hilly city but many people live along “The Bay” shoreline where the tides come in/go out leaving a slippery looking muck behind.

The 17-Mile Drive takes you in a loop around coastline and inland points of interest. It was a bit overcast this morning so we stayed inland for the beginning ...
... and an ice cream cone then more Friday afternoon California traffic as we made our way down to Monterey.
We're staying at the Spindrift Inn, right on Cannery Row, in a room directly over the ocean. I'm sitting here writing this as the sun goes down, sailboats returning from afternoon sails, wine and cheese at my elbow and the waves crashing below. A very worthwhile splurge for a great room.
