Day Three, Road Trip To San Fran

I have taken so many pictures in the first two and a half days of the road trip that I have to put at least two on every post.
Now, where was I? Oh yes, we have broken down in Crescent City, California. A lovely lady at the Travel Lodge directs us to a local garage called "Two Guys". I know what you are thinking, because I was too. We manage to locate it after a couple of wrong turns and a quick stop at Starbucks... There are definitely more than two guys at this place. They do it all! The local car repair, tire repair, welding, car rental and hot tub sales. We felt we were in good hands immediately. While waiting for the verdict on the car we met a couple of real characters. One recommended a drive along Pebble Beach ~ where these pictures were taken. The fog was miraculous, the way it rolled in over the landscape. I've never seen anything like this before. I am sure the pictures won't do it justice. http://www.crescentcity.org/

So, the car.... needs a couple of sensors and they aren't stocked locally. They are coming via courier tomorrow. We decide to check into the Travel Lodge next door then rent a car from the nice woman who works with the two guys and jet off to see the Redwood forest and Paul Bunyan. Maybe we'll even drive through a tree.

Here's our little rental car driving through the redwood.  A very touristy thing to do but hey! we couldn't help ourselves.
