Pacific Coast North of Sonoma - "Scenic Route"

Looking South, Marash Girl, almost blown over by the winds, attempted to walk down to the Pacific Coast.

"Doesn't say nothin' about the sharks!"

Mustard Plant borders the plains along the Russian River. Legend has it that the monks tossed mustard  seed out along the road as they travelled from mission to mission along the California coast, bright yellow flowers to mark their way from southern California to the last mission in Sonoma.

The Russian River meets the Pacific.  Mustard Seed in the foreground.

Thanks to Marina driving North in her BMW 5 Series along Highway One and the Russian River, Marash Girl experienced all of the above, passing through Bodega, population 126,  Guerneville, Population 116, Jenner population 170, Duncans Mills, Population 85, and -- wow -- Monte Rio, population 1150!
