    Long Road Trip to Manchester

    August 9, 2017 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 16 °C

    Quite the drive today. Left early because I knew it would be a long drive. Had no idea though that it would have a narrow, winding 22 mile stretch with endless hairpin turns. We stopped for breaks but it took from 9:30 - 7:00 to get from Crescent City to Manchester CA.

    Very scenic drive though. We took a drive through the Redwoods and stopped for a short walk to one of the largest trees named The Big Tree. The drive from Leggett to the coast was crazy. But very beautiful. Setting was much like Jurassic Park. The coastal stretch south to Manchester was also very scenic.

    I thought that the area would be more populated but Manchester has a population of only about 400. The beach is about mile from the KOA. It has no amenities. So no surfing for the kids today.

    Tomorrow it should be an easy drive to Petaluma just north of San Francisco where we will pick Laura up at the airport!

    San Francisco Here We Come!

    August 11, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    Have really enjoyed our stay at the KOA here in Manchester. Went for a long walk to the remote beach in the morning and spent the rest of the day relaxing in the campground, doing our laundry, playing ping pong, pool and pinball with the kids, ice cream social and Karaoke last night with a large communal fire, ate BBQ'd ribs, boiled potatoes and super salad for dinner and ended the day eating peanuts in the shell around our own 🔥.Read more

    Winding Road to KOA Luxury

    October 16, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Tamra, our host in Fort Bragg, had warned us about a steep hill on our day's ride, and given Holly was still recovering from the mysterious flu and a general lack of sleep, she was anticipating the hill for quite some time, only to discover that it was south of the next town... or the next? We were pretty sure when we got there it was indeed the hill Tamra had spoken of, as the steep switchbacks were unmistakable and quite a grunt. Like the rest of the coastal road, however, the hill was shortlived and we pedaled the whole way up. We continued on the winding road to Manchester where we stayed in a KOA campground for a change since the state park was closed - one of the many perks at the campsite was a hot tub!Read more
