Day 20 – A Bad Case of the Glamp

Tomorrow is Olivia’s Birthday!

As always, we made big plans for it.

We started down the coast towards her surprise, and found many adventures along the way.

We took the scenic route through the “Avenue of Giants,” a 30 mile road through the redwoods. They were majestic and reverential.

We stopped at a gift shop to pick up a few things for the girl’s birthday. Luckily, she wanted to stay in the car while we ran in. When we got back, we found this. . .

This is very much her personality. She was actually hiding under Toby’s bed. LOL!


After a relaxing lunch in Miranda, CA, we started back down the freeway and quickly discovered the beginnings of the Highway 1. It was not what we expected and nothing like the other parts of the highway that we are used too. It took us on many a winding and gut-twisting turns up and down mountains. The speed would range from 10 to 50 mph and the temperature kept going up and down from 50 to 90 degrees. The views were spectacular, but I think all of us were a little car sick by the time we turned a corner and wham; there was the ocean.

The rest of the drive was beautiful in true highway 1 style until we got to Mendicino, Olivia’s surprise. A big glamping tent!

I think Toby loved it most of all.

We had a lovely night enjoying the outdoors and hanging by the fire.
