Road Trip – West Coast Style

5.28.10 On Friday, we started out our venture up north (along with sis-in-law and her boyfriend) to Oregon.

Along the way, we saw some nice sights, including the snow-capped Mt. Shasta.

Eventually, we made our way to the town of Jacksonville, OR.

It was a quaint little town in Southern Oregon and our 1st stop there was at Gary West for some cheese curds and microbrews.

Next up was some wine tasting at South Stage Cellars.

We ended the evening at the Jacksonville Inn, where we had much to eat and drink, including some bacon infused Bourbon.

5.29.10 On Saturday, we arrived at our destination – Cannon Beach, OR.

We enjoyed walking around downtown, had some drinks at Bill’s Tavern and I purchased my 1st growler.

Finished up the night with a drink at Ye Olde Driftwood Tavern.

5.30.10 Had breakfast at Pig N Pancake then off to Ecola State Park for sis-in-law’s wedding.

We ended the night with dinner at Doogers.

5.31.10 It’s back down the coast and a return trip to California. On the way, we saw some beautiful scenery and stopped to take in the Redwood National Park.

We spent the evening in Eureka, CA, staying at a great B&B called Carter House.

We really enjoyed the property – from having an entire floor to ourselves to the complimentary wine/cheese offering at happy hour and cookies/tea in the evening. Too bad that the town of Eureka was less than desirable with its unsavory inhabitants.

6.1.10 – 4 mo hours in the car but before reaching San Fran, we stopped in Healdsburg, CA.

While there, we made a pilgrimage to the Bear Republic.

At night, we had dinner at Suppenkuche in Hayes Valley (SF) and drinks at Place Pigalle.

6.2.10 Back in SF, we headed to the Giants/Rockies game.

6.4.10 Met up with friends at Momo’s then sushi and drinks at Tsunami.
