The drive today took us south on 101 to the Redway Exit and over the Shelter Cove Road (23 miles) and almost an hour drive due to the winding narrow roads. When we left the campground it was sunny, but 5 miles before Shelter Cove a heavy fog awaited us.
I was surprised at the many homes in the area since it is so remote and only accessible by one main road or private plane and boat. For serious shopping you have to go into Garberville 25 miles away. Also expected a small town area with cafes and shops, but not that we could locate.
We drove down to the Mendocino Lighthouse and got a nice view of the sea lions on rocks below.
There is an RV park in the area, but certainly would not want be be that remote and endure the drive.
It is one of those been there, done that side trips.
Tomorrow we depart for Crescent Beach, CA and Bayside RV Park for 5 nights.
