I went to San Francisco and Sonoma recently, during a heat wave. San Francisco was sunny from sunrise to sunset (which I have never experienced), and Sonoma was tickling 100. So I drove over to the Sonoma Coast, which was foggy and cool, just what was needed. On the way I stopped and took several photos - it was beautiful country.
There were several little shacks along the road like this - on the way to Bodega Bay.
There were several cattle and or dairy farms along the 30 mile stretch - cows were everywhere including right close to the road, at the very top of the golden hills and some were lounging in the front yards of farms. More on the beaching coming.
