Bodega Bay

Sheep! Photo, Petaluma, California

So today was the best day of the trip! My friend and I were visiting dad works for the Coast Guard and managed to get us a ride on one of their ships! We made the drive to Bodega Bay in the morning to the Coast Guard ship area. We got safety instructions and all got to dress in "mustangs" which are just big orange suits to help survive the cold water if you fall in. We then headed out into the harbor and around the ocean for a few hours, we even got to drive the boat! Go thing there were no Coast Guard emergencies for the day or this part would have been cancelled.

In the afternoon we decided to head to the beach around there. It was very pretty but cold and windy! We only stayed about 30 minutes and hopped back in the car to head back and ended up getting lost. The drive was gorgeous though and reminded me of the countryside of England.

Been to this destination?
