cTv finds taking great photos at Bowling Ball Beach can be a blessing… or a real challenge if the proverbial stars are not in the optimum position (sun and moon/tide, that is). Then there is the rope ladder to navigate unless you elect to go the long way – the Schooner Gulch south route. On our first summertime evening, being 90 minutes after low tide was too late and most all of the boulders were under water. Trying again the next early morning, this time while the boulders were fully exposed, the morning sun was hiding behind the cliffs for almost two hours. Lucky/well prepared photographers will be blessed with the perfect photos with the concretion boulders partially emerged during the golden or blue hour – GOOD LUCK AND MAY THE ODDS BE FOREVER IN YOUR FAVOR 🙂
Prior to owning our RV, we traveled North to Point Arena to enjoy the rural ocean scenery with our Siberian Husky, Kaliki, who discovered formidable burrowing gopher holes. We all got our money’s worth going down to the Greenwood State Beach in the sleepy city of Elk. Next we will check out Bowling Ball Beach and the Point Arena Lighthouse.
Before going to the redwoods at Samuel P Taylor State Park, we head West in our RV to Drakes Bay in the splendid Point Reyes National Seashore. Historically speaking, Sir Francis Drake championed England’s effort to find riches in the Pacific. Fortunately at the end of summer, our weather temperatures are perfect and the wind was almost nil. Too bad we can’t fly our drone to share some aerial footage but the National Parks prohibit flight even if no one is around. We will have some drone flight in the next episode while we visit the city of Point Reyes, one of the honeymoon stops for Prince Charles and Camilla.
Time for us to enjoy the great outdoors with our Siberian Husky, Kaliki. Nothing beats a temperate, warm day on the beach with a soft wind caressing us. There is nothing quite like communing with nature to nurture the soul and recharge our batteries. Okay, play and frolicking about ain’t half bad either!
Finally, we are off and ready for romance in our Fleetwood RV “Rhiannon” on our first trip. It’s celebration time for two newbies ready to taste the good life and RV Living in our recreational vehicle. So will we find romance or…? We’re rookies, so please feel free to coach us with your comments and be sure to SUBSCRIBE on our YouTube channel with more fun coming in Part 2…
