We are at Brannon Island State Park , the nearest town is Rio Vista..not Far from Stockton California. we think we will stay here tomorrow too. It's been a stressful couple of days.
We loved Harris Beach SP in Oregon, we took the dogs for a walk before we left, Thursday. What beautiful
We drove down Highway 101, stopping often to enjoy the view. It is breathtaking all the way. I think we only drove about 100 miles. We couldn't find a park to stay in so we headed to Bear Creek Casino, outside of Eureka Ca. As we drove in there was a sign for RV parking, so we parked, went in and registered. They
were very welcoming, said we could stay for up to three days. We went to the casino for a little while, lost a total of two dollars.
We headed out early next morning, drove down the 101 to Legett Ca, where we decided to head back to the coast on highway 1. What a mistake that was, it is only 22 miles to Fort Bragg on the coast, but it was the worst road we could have taken, 22 miles of switchbacks 6 and 7% grades, really narrow. Every once in a while a logging truck would come the other way and we would hold our breath hoping there was room for
both of us. Not fun.
We were heading for Bothe Valley State Park when we lost our lights again, there was a casino near by
so we headed there, but they didn't allow RVs overnight. The security fellow was also a sheriff and he told us to go back to the nearest little town and stay overnight at a highway pull off. so we drove back to Gyserville, and spent the night by the side of the road. we were not happy campers, but it was well lit and we had no problems.
This morning we headed east, and arrived at Brannon Island SP, which is lovely, we hung out awhile, then went to Rio Vista to get yet another fuse for our lights, went to the Laundromat, and the farmers market.
Skip set up the satellite dish and we watched the Canucks beat the Leafs. So today was a good day! I saved the best for last, it was a sunny 24c
