We set off from Cavallo Point, the lodge at the Golden Gate bridge, heading north to Mendocino.
We're on the tiny, squirrelly Highway 1.
With the Pacific Ocean dropping down cliffs to the left, and the green lush mountains to the right, I keep saying, Wow! Look, Eddie, Look! WOW!
It is so beautiful it boggles the mind. Rain was predicted but instead it's another gorgeous, sunny day.
About 30 minutes north we stop at the Parkside Cafe at Stinson Beach. It's a throwback to the 50s. The Marketplace smells of fresh, warm bread just out of the oven.
If we'd realized the Parkside Cafe was here we might not have had that delicious breakfast before we left Cavallo Point.
The serendipity of chancing upon a place like the Parkside Cafe and its bakery and market is what a slow road trip is all about.
