California Trip - Day 3 Saturday April 9th, 2011

We were ready to go have some fun on the beach on this day.
What we didn't know was how windy and cold it was going to be.
This is California people, its supposed to be warm, right?
Unfortunately it was not! :(
It was probably the area we went to and the time of year that we went.
If you notice in most of the pictures we are all wearing jackets and jeans. 

We started off by going on a scenic tour through an area called The Russian River.
It was a narrow road with lots of trees and you follow the river until you reach the coast.
There is houses on the mountains as well as tons of fields with awesome vineyards.
It was so green and so pretty.

We wanted to go check out Bodega Bay.
Needless to say, i was a little disappointed. I thought it was going to be a little more taken care of with lots more to see. But it wasn't.

The anticipation of seeing the ocean for the first time, especially if you haven't seen it in a while is crazy.
It is so pretty and you have to go see it if you haven't at least once in your lifetime.

I was determined to wear shorts this day, but of course I changed out of them the first chance I got.
stupid cold weather!

We stopped and had lunch at a little place called The Boathouse.
It was so crowded and some of us had to sit in different areas than the others.
We all ordered fish and chips.
and they weren't that good and it was expensive.

This kite shop was next to where we had lunch. it was a cute little place.

I love this girl! :)

Ugh! It was SO windy!

I can't tell you how much i love them. :)

While we were in Bodega bay, we stopped at a market and bought some fresh fish. Whole crabs, salmon and jumbo prawns. It was SO good. I didn't even touch the salmon, i was stuffed!!

Be jealous!
We were all so full after eating the seafood, that we basically just lounged around the rest of the night. Fine with me....I was on vacation. :)

Sunday we drive into the city.
Be excited!
