Pumpkins, Redwoods and Seasonal Ale

It was a crisp and beautiful day on Sunday, so Plot and Duck drove Captain Crow and Helmsman Finch down Highway One, past the pumpkin patches and San Gregorio Beach...

...into the redwood grove in Memorial Park above Pescadero.

The redwoods are so close to Saint Plotniko, in all directions, and yet after eighteen years of living nearby this was the first time Plottie and Ducknik had ventured up in that canyon. (Of course, it was necessary to stop for a pre-redwood lunch at Duarte's for Artichoke Soup and Anchor Steam Seasonal Ale.)

Saint Plotniko is the anomaly -- we sit in the rare coastal open space. North and South are still primarily forest and some of it is truly breathtaking. Plot and Duck need to get out more.

I love Memorial Park - we used to go camping there a lot when the kids were younger. Being around all those redwood trees is awesome. And there are a number of parks further south just as cool. The one thing they all have in common though is that you better not be prone to getting car sick.

Duartes rules! Next stop: Ano Nuevo, to see the elephant seals!
