A recent assignment sent me to Occidental, California .. what better time for a mini road trip! I love the area north of San Francisco. .. To me it conjures images of quintessential Northern California. I set out on my shooting adventure late morning to arrive at my destination by around lunch time. After a minor snafu at the car rental counter I persevered and off I went with my trusty Iphone plugged in and some great tunes I made my way towards Occidental, Bodega Bay and Petaluma... I was lucky enough to discover an awesome country road go from Occidental to Bodega Bay. I found some cute cows (and sheep but they stayed far away from me) .. who doesn't love a good cow photo?
