Spent most of today driving from the Bay Area to Arcata.
Driving the Pacific Coast Highway has long been a dream of mine, so I intended to go up Route 1. Unfortunately, I had to turn around at Jenner because a tanker flipped over up north, closing down both traffic lanes.
Still, I did get to drive along the Sonoma Coast (with a detour to Point Reyes National Seashore), and that part was beautiful.
While my time on Route 1 was cut short, it did mean I had to go along Highway 101, which is beautiful (and nervewracking to drive) in its own way, with wine country, redwoods and, somewhere in the middle, some delicious, delicious tacos.
It’s now 9 p.m., and all I want to do is go to bed. Who cares if it’s still not dark out?
