Our road trip has brought us to northern California to visit the redwood forest and spend some time at the ocean.
The view from our beach house - it's so, so beautiful to look out on the ocean.
The blackberries are growing everywhere here!
Exploring the California coastline
The pictures give you just a little glimpse of how spectacular the trees actually are.
Beautiful old growth redwood forest
We originally planned this trip with my parents, who really wanted to see the trees, but at the last minute they weren't able to come with us. Everything we've done has been with them in mind and many times today we said to each other, "They would have loved this!" Hopefully we'll have another opportunity to do this together.
