The first leg of my trip was flying into Oakland, CA, where my sister and her friend picked me up along with two of her five sweet kiddos. From Oakland, CA, we headed to my cousin's house in the Marina (sorry, to all of you who live in San Francisco, including my best friend who introduced Brando and I and lives there- we just didn't have time to stop elsewhere!) to have lunch with her and my other cousin who was up visiting from Costa Mesa. Yet another cousin, her husband, and baby, came by to say hi after lunch and cupcakes, and then we were on our way up the coast to Fort Bragg and Glass Beach. These pictures are all taken from the car from San Francisco to Fort Bragg and about an hour beyond along the coast and highway 1.
