Westfalia Road Trip Day 19 – Gualala CA to Pescadeno CA

Gualala was a great relaxing camping find, we would recommend it to anyone heading down the coast.

Today was dedicated to mostly travel and taking advantage traveling through a city and getting some free wifi to communicate with home and work.

We b-lined it to Petaluma and set up shop in a Panera simply based on the fact they had free wifi.  I hung out with Archer and did some work on the laptop while Connie took the opportunity to get her hair washed and blow dried at a salon, a little bit of luxury after “roughing it”.

While in Petaluma you must stop at one of the coolest craft breweries in North America, Lagunitas Brewing Company. This is great stop if you like craft beer, they also have a ton of merchandise that makes it easy to spend your hard earned.  If you can plan ahead it would be awesome to check out a band at their LaguMiniamphitheater.

We headed south in the VW Westfalia and traveled across a the Golden Gate Bridge and passed through San Francisco although we decided not to stop.  We chose to not stop in major cities that we have been to before or figured we would return to at some point in the next few years, San Fran was one of those.

We ended our day at the KOA Costanoa in Pescadeno California.  This was a very interesting KOA that was part of a resort which included a fancy hotel and restaurant.  Since we arrived fairly late we decided take advantage of the Cascade Restaurant and we ended up with a fantastic meal backed up with great service.  Overall this was a nice resort with a great view and had very clean facilities, reminiscent of a higher end hotel.  You will pay a premium to stay here.

Another great day on the road!
