Tomorrow we head to a local favorite destination – Bodega Bay – just off Highway 1 on the coast. When we moved to California, we stayed at Bodega Dunes Campground while we waited to close on our house.
Our belongings were in transit to Sacramento on moving trucks and we were in the midst of the recession. As with any move, this was an emotional time. Despite this, we had decided to drive across the country with the dogs.
We wanted it to be memorable. We wanted an adventure.
As I look back, I have fond memories and it was adventurous – everything was new and different. It was late February and we had left the frigid weather of Minneapolis and were enjoying rain instead of ice and snow. We left the rolling hills of the Upper Great Lakes with the Pacific ocean in plain view.
Every time we return to Bodega Bay makes me think about our big adventure and the days we spent walking the beach anticipating the future.
I appreciate our new home and special places.
