cTv Drone Flyover, Point Reyes Station, Charming Tourist Destination

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.

cTv, Puppet Show – RV Drive to Drakes Beach, Point Reyes National Seashore

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.

cTv, Could this be Bigfoot at Henry Cowell State Park among the redwoods?

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…
