We left snug Joe's Cabin yesterday, heading out along the wild and rugged California coast. Winding through the redwoods to Pacific, we hugged the shore road as wild and windy rain battered the coast. Opting for a dry night's sleep (or perhaps softened by a comfy week in the cabin) we checked into th Beachcomber Hotel in Fort Bragg. I left the slider door open in the evening to hear the surf pounding upon the rocky shore in our sleep. Today will make our way to the San Francisco Bay area for a weekend of visiting friends and checking out the sights.
