Where I stayed
What I did
Picked up our white Mustang convertible
Drove North for 8 hours on Highway 101
Stopped in Trinidad for delicious dinner at Trinidad Bay Eatery
Spun up the rear wheels as often as possible :)
Touched the ocean at Trinidad
We started heading south on the Pacific Coast Highway. After about 20 minutes it occurred to us that we should drive to the top of California and drive the whole length instead so we turned around and drove the 8 hour trip to the top of California (on the 101 which is slightly quicker - and gave us a different view). The views must have been good because we didn't notice the time pass really.
We didn't really stop, except to put the lid down (as Alison likes to call it) until we got hungry at about 7 in the evening
After dinner we went for a wander down on the beach and touched the Pacific ocean. We continued on up the highway 101 to a very very little place called Orick where we found a cheap motel. We had to ring a buzzer to get the owner to come out. A very nice lady of about a hundred and seventy years old and quite slow. Felt really bad about making her move. She really liked the name Matthew.
