The Oregon Coast

California faded slowly behind us as we made our way up Highway 101 toward the Oregon coast. It was with a mixture of sadness and excitement that we left the Redwoods and the state that had served as our home for the past two years. The overcast skies had us missing the sun of Southern...

The Redwoods

It seemed almost too soon that we were back on the road after only a little rest, but we were excited for our next destination. Before leaving Fort Bragg entirely, we stopped by Noyo Harbor, which bills itself as “one of the West Coast’s most scenic harbors.” After a quick stop to get some smoked... Continue Reading →

Monterey, Big Sur, and Fort Bragg

We realized upon leaving our campground in San Simeon that we were in a pocket of green beauty. When we got back on the road, we were once again driving through flat agricultural land and entertained ourselves by watching the many fields of vegetables pass us by.

But first, we had to pack it in. For the first time in what seems like forever. We filled the tires with air... Continue Reading →

Balancing Tasks & Fun

It's surprising how much we have to get done before we leave -- to get the Wandering Dolphin back on the road. We've still been working on getting the vehicles ready. The RV needed a good washing so we pressure washed the exterior, including the roof.   We moved the pool table out from in... Continue Reading →

Prepping the Vehicles

The Wandering Dolphin hasn't wandered for quite some time. In fact, our last big trip with the motorhome was when we took it to Las Vegas (and we all know how that turned out -- stranded in the middle of the desert). Now that we have a departure date set, we have to buckle down... Continue Reading →
