our last days in timber cove.
we were staying just a mile from the historic timber cove inn so we stopped in for a meal and a stroll along the headlands.
small waterfalls ran downhill out of the steeply forested hillsides and over the bluffs.
yesterday when it was time to leave we headed south on hwy 1 toward the mouth of the russian river in jenner.
the road there is impossibly lovely.
several times we had to stop and wait for cows & calves to cross the road. fine with me!
fog poured down the hills and followed the river to the sea.
such incandescent beauty.
if you ever have the chance to drive on this road from timbercove to jenner do it. in the morning if possible.
i came down the exact same road a week ago, but saw none of this in the dense fog & light rain. so yesterday’s drive was a revelation.
a baptism of light and fog.
we headed inland on hwy 116, stopping in the charming hamlet of guerneville for breakfast. this entire area is just. so. scenic.
the end of my northcoast story wouldn’t be complete without a fireball report. yep. it’s true. we BOTH saw one a few nights ago. she from the deck and me from inside the house. i was thrilled to have a witness. no fireballs for 51 years and now 3 in the last month. i know! peeps keep your eyes peeled. there’s fireballs in them there skies!
