Season 2. Winter Journey

Welcome back to our Journey! 20181207_165601.jpg
Merry Christmas from Travis AFB. We finally arrived at our final destination for this season, after traveling 4000 miles. It is bittersweet I have to say. I did not want to stop, thinking of settling down for a few months did not sound appealing, but at the same time I saw a new potential in our future. We can get our much needed doctor appointments knocked out, our poor little Jeep can get worked on and our home can get thoroughly cleaned.
We reserved our site until May on a very conveniently located campground on the Air base. The days Tony is in college I don't have to worry about feeling stuck in our rig, because all the necessities are within reach with the grocery store, shopping center, hospital and restaurants all within walking distance. Our first day alone turned out pretty eventful, Landon and I marched all the way to the passenger terminal at the base airport and we came back with useful information for our upcoming surprise trip.

Our first expedition took us an hour from here, to Marin Headlands. In that area are approximately 6 National parks. You know that we have no choice but to see them all! I love our parks. 20181217_121423.jpg
That morning the local weather channel advised of massive waves along the coast of San Francisco area. The waves are called "Sneaker Waves" and appear suddenly. In the past people walking the beach have been swept off the beach by Sneaker Waves. Usually they are 20- 30 feet high, but can reach up to 50 feet. This was way too intriguing and we had to see that in person. 20181217_131801.jpg
The waves were definitely powerful, with my camera I was not able to zoom out far enough to capture the size of the waves further away. They were extremely huge! The ocean roared while I marveled at the beauty of it. IMG_20181217_163557_785.jpg
We hiked along the cliff, tasting the salt in the air. 97F7898CC48A270AE93DD8138182F8CF.jpg
As we hiked back, we picked up more brochures for the other parks nearby. But first and foremost we had to see San Francisco's most famous landmark. 97F6D9E799980C96E7454CD1A6DC21C1.jpg
Our day was very eventful and I fell in love with the Bay Area. 20181217_130143.jpg 20181217_141258.jpg
