Point Arena

While staying a few nights at the Fort Ross Lodge, we decided to take a drive up the coast beyond Gualala, farther than we usually go on our escapes to the ocean. Since I failed to consult a map, I had the mistaken impression that Fort Bragg was just a short trip up the coast, and I expected we would […]

Memory Monday, Week 124

June 1979 — Back in August 2017 (beginning with Memory Monday, Week 39) I shared the photos I took during my family’s 1979 road trip through Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia, Canada.
