Our overnight on 44th street in Oakland meant dinner with friends, a chance for Finn and Stella to catch up and some delicious pastries at this co-op.
It was the perfect start to a long journey northwards.

The trip from Oakland to Mendocino included the curvy Highway 128, which boasted giant Redwood groves and a little gem of a town called Boonville.
We pulled into Mendocino around dinner time, and were greeted with a cool breeze and a pretty little cottage, complete with a spiral staircase, wild blackberries, pond and chicken coop.
Our time in the hippie laden town of Mendocino was near perfect, with long walks, good eats and enough exploring to satisfy even Stella.
Next stop: Shelter Cove and the beginning of the Lost Coast!
