Day 37 - Petaluma, CA to Boulder Creek, CA


We got up and headed off to San Francisco.  The City by the Bay.  Crossing the Golden Gate Bridge is exciting and expensive.  If you are towing, we recommend that you unhitch and drive across separately.  The cost will be less than 1/2 of the cost of driving your motorhome and tow vehicle across.  Driving a motorhome (towing or not) through San Francisco is an experience.  We headed down 19th Avenue and were glad to see that we weren't the most out-of-place vehicles driving through the City that day.  Evidently, there had been a horse show at the Cow Palace as we saw several huge pickups and horse trailers heading north as we headed south!

Once through the City, we headed over to Pacifica so we could cruise down the coast.  We wanted to avoid the Highway 17 at rush hour crowds and driving along the coast extended our vacation.  It was beautiful and we had Popeye's Fried Chicken for lunch in Half Moon Bay.

We approached Santa Cruz from the ocean and made our way to Scotts Valley where we picked up the dogs and then headed home, after profusely thanking Greg's mom and sister for watching them for us while we were gone.

The dogs were very glad to see us again and so, surprisingly, were Greg's mom and sister!

Home!  It's good to be home!
