Samuel P. Taylor Redwoods, camping by a running stream your dog loves, easy cooking by the fire, tucking in to sleep – these are a few of our favorite things. Glamping RVLife ain’t half bad.
With some drone shots from above, we enjoy a midday stop-shop-and-lunch at rural tourist destination Point Reyes Station where Prince Charles and Camilla visited on their honeymoon tour. When you’re in the area of the Point Reyes National Seashore and Samuel P Taylor redwoods, this charming city is a fun place to checkout their shops and have a delicious meal with cool nearby ocean temperatures. Autos, campers and the RVers in the area can also “fill ‘er up” if they don’t mind the premium prices.
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.
At last, cTv (California Travel Videos) hops aboard the steam train at Roaring Camp in the Henry Cowell State Park (between Santa Cruz and Felton, California). While the redwood grove was revered by lumberjacks to provide the best possible wood to build homes, fortunately the Cowell family bought a large tract of land as a preserve. We dedicate this video to Frank B Lamoly, town Marshall at Roaring Camp for 50 years.
Time to checkout the super tall, super old redwoods (one hundred million CENTURIES old) in Henry Cowell park. Missed Bigfoot center but our Siberian Husky Kaliki scored water play in the running river. Next up, we will walk over to the Roaring Camp village and hop aboard the steam train.
Do you believe in the Bigfoot? Near Santa Cruz, the Henry Cowell State Park is well known for its soaring redwood trees approaching 300 feet high. So in addition to being located near the Pacific Ocean and sheltered from the sun, this sanctuary makes an ideal getaway for travelers, be it RV, tent or ala-natural. And who knows what you’ll see deep in the forest…
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!
Sooner or later, all us first-time newbies have to tackle the dreaded dump of their black water tank. And while they say luck is when preparation meets opportunity, I’m sure many of us ponder the benefits of converting to a composting toilet. What do you think – any tips to share?
