For some reason we're having lousy luck uploading photos, which I realize are the reason most people check our blog.

The coast basicly looks like this. When we get a chance there will be many more pictures of it.

We're still touring the breweries! There are a million of them on the coast. These guys make Scrimshaw, which is great.

Two things: 1) You can see the fog in this picture, it's present every morning and then burns off by early afternoon for a brilliant clear day. 2) We're in Marin County and it's a beautiful place. Fairfax is our location, and it's twenty miles from SF.

Did you get to try Red Seal from the tap? Scrimshaw and Red Seal are sold in Chicago!

Hey you guys, a coworker who grew up in Marin suggest the ride over Mt. Tamalpias is worth the climb for the view of the city and bay.
Congratulations, Sandra says hi.

Pat- We drank some Red Seal last night, but didn't get any at the brewery. There are so many good micro-beers out here that it's hard to keep track. We're trying to tour the Anchor Brewery today, I'll report back.

North Coast is the best! We got married in Ft.Bragg just so we could go there with the party. Keg of Red Seal: demolished in 24 hours by about 20 people.
I am Eve, Amber's twin sis (From Vancouver). I've been following your trip. Amazing. Seriously.
