8.30 am start for trip to California. More amazing scenery of the pacific coastline and very low cloud cover over the mountains. 11 .10 and we enter the golden state.
Have just realised that we've been listening to Christian radio for the last 20 minutes.
Driving through prairie creek redwood state park. These are bloody big trees over 300 ft and can live up to 2000 years. Black bears live here too but no sightings. Have seen deer, sheep, cows and goats and strangely eucalyptus trees.
It appears that we underestimated some journey times as the speed limits are low here and 101 is very windy roads a lot of the time. Also have to pass through many tsunami zones. To add to this; American roads are poorly maintained. Oh well never mind it's still a nice trip.
