Northern California Coastal Tour

Spent yesterday morning driving through Alameda, Marin and Sonoma counties in Northern California. 

Here are some photos from the area around Bodega Bay in Sonoma County.


We drove through beautiful Alameda and Marin Counties and spent most of the day at the Russian River, beaches and redwood forests of Sonoma County.


The high point of my day was lunch at Russian House #1 just outside Jenner, California. It was a Russian Buffett with really good food and an amazing view of the Russian River. 


Here is a link to their Yelp review:

The fascinating thing was that there were no prices. They just offer you the food, tell you to eat as much as you want and then tell you to leave what you think it was worth in a basket by the door! Between the view, service and service, my father and I left $32. There were also a couple of folks who had no money but volunteered to work for their meals. Love the concept.Highly recommend this place.

I thank God every day I live in Cali.
