The first thousand is always the hardest

Today we clocked up the first one thousand miles of our West Coast USA road trip. The milestone occured   as we drove into Santa Rosa, enroute to Fort Bragg on northern coast of California. We ultimately drove 160 miles today, winding steadily up the wild coastline from the mouth of Russian River.

The river mouth was a picture perfect way to start our next coastal adventure. Here we saw several groups of seals basking in the sun on a broad sandbank along the river's edge. Further up the coast we spotted a family of deer, including two fawns, grazing by the roadside. They seemed not the least bit peturbed by passing traffic.
