After our time in San Francisco, we headed North for the Soma Coast. On the way we stopped at Guerneville, home to a beautiful redwood forest. These are some of our favourite trees and after being in the city it was so nice to be back in nature. When we hit the Soma Coast, it was amazing to see such a rugged coastline. There were large rock sections you could walk out on and feel the power of the waves, see the wildlife and feel the sea breeze. As we ventured North the towns started to get smaller and fewer and far between, tourists became less and less and good coffee got harder and harder to find hehe. 

The next day we spent the morning in Trinidad, a small fishing town with a magical coastline and cute cafe's. There was something surreal about the view of the ocean from Trinidad, if felt like a different world. As we continued North we fell in love with the houses that lined the coast, definitely a beautiful place to live. But nothing compares to the brilliant sights we were in for at the Redwood National and State Parks.

When we arrived at the Southern tip of the Redwood Parks, which is made up of serval National and State parks, we were in heaven. This is a magical part of the world, we have never seen forest like this and it blew us away. You are surrounded by some of the tallest trees in the world, trees that can reach up to 113m and survive for hundreds, some thousands of years. These spectacular trees have a way of making you feel so small but so special at the same time. A beautiful memory we will cherish forever and a place we would highly recommend exploring. 

Lovely lighthouse on the Soma Coast.

We wouldn't drive more than 20mins without seeing a beautiful stream or walking track to explore. This place was one of our favourite discoveries. 

Loved seeing this old couple still exploring.

Who thought giant trees would be so amazing. We'll never forget the day we drove through the Avenue of the giants, one of the most beautiful experiences.
