Day 155 - October 1st.  We are at a cute little RV park down the hill (and I do mean hill) from the Ridgeway Ranch where Seabiscuit lived.  And unfortunately, tours stopped yesterday!  Just our luck - First the Government shuts down an includes the National Parks and now Ridgeway Ranch - what is a girl to do???  This is a no bones rv park, no wi-fi and no tv - so we are really camping now (isn't that sad??)...we met a nice couple of ladies next to us and the park has deer and turkeys running around like pets!!  

Gas in California is $4.11 for regular!  Down from Canada and Alaska, but up from Oregon where there is no state tax.

We had a good ride today seeing Elk, a Red Tailed Hawk, and the turkey and black tailed deer.

Day 156 - Off to Mendocino to see the town where Murder She Wrote was filmed.  I'll have to catch an old episode to see what I saw today.  Nice and sunny and fairly warm.  We visited another lighthouse (what else does one do on the coast)?  The surf is still pretty well churned up which makes for great pictures.  The town is cute, but not sure what these people do for a living and we see lots of young families here as well as the older folks and one or two bums!!

We are currently in the town of Ft. Bragg using the wifi at McDonalds.  The road to get  here was quite windy and up and down hills.  Nick was glad not to be doing it in the coach.  He may have permanent "white knuckles" from some of the drives he has done along the way. The drive was 30 miles but took about an hour to drive it.

Tomorrow we are off to Novato just North of San Rafael where I will visit with my cousin Betsy and her family.

Do you plan to visit San Simeon south of San Fran? You absolutely MUST and get advanced tickets to ensure you get to tour the entire Hearst property. Its a mind blowing experience :)

We are back from Orlando. No pictures to post. Home for a week then Pennsylvania for a week. Hopefully, the next trip will be a Disney boat ride. Again, no pictures needed.
