Dorey's Do California || Beach Camping & Hwy 1

Tuesday, June 14, 2016

Finishing up the re-cap on our California trip. To read about our other California adventures you can read them here, here and here
We left Lake Tahoe on Thursday morning (day 5) and it was my 30th birthday! We headed towards the coast and our campsite for the night. 
We actually camped on the beach in Westport. It was absolutely amazing.

After we set up camp Sean really wanted to take me to dinner. Thankfully there was an amazing little pub right down the road. It was actually part of a B&B and I wouldn't be surprised if we're back there one day. 

It reminded us so much of where we stayed on our honeymoon (Greyfield Inn on Cumberland Island). There was so much character and the food was amazing!

We made it back in time to catch the sunset and build a fire. I really wasn't prepared for the cool air. The only beaches I've ever been to are not cool. 

The next morning we got up and around. We enjoyed breakfast on the beach, coffee, and a little walk. We then loaded up and headed to Fort Bragg. We stopped in at MacKerricher State Park and were able to see some seals and sea lions soaking up some rays.


We also stopped in at the glass beach. I really wanted to stop there, but Sean was much more interested than me once we were actually there. I'm pretty sure he would have stayed all day digging up pieces of red and green glass. 

We made it down Hwy 1 to San Francisco. Honestly, I was not prepared for those roads. And neither was Sean. I've never seen him so nervous driving down a road. 

Once we were in the city we found a hotel near the airport, got cleaned up, and re-packed to fly home. We had the best time but were definitely ready to see our babies.
