Bodega Bay tagged posts


We were back in the land of “The Birds” and our friends said they’d made a new discovery last year when they camped in Bodega Bay.  This was a discovery worth sharing and making into a tradition.

Just 5 minutes or so past the town of Bodega is the town of Freestone, a place we’ve breezed past on our way to Sebastopol more than once without a blink of an eye.  

Just turn left on the Bohemiann Hwy and there you are.  


Our destination was the Wildflour Bread Bakery where delicious breads are baked in a wood fired brick oven.  


The bakery is only open Friday through Monday and when we got there the line was out the door.


But, they must be very used to these crowds and had a great system for quick service…...

Porto Bodega Revisited

We recently revisited Porto Bodega Marina and RV Park for 5 days and……other than the wind blowing crazy wild almost every moment….we had a lovely, relaxing trip. DSCN3599                 We had the exact same spot as last year. DSCN3602Here are the three rigs….ours and our friends….along with our three white trucks.

Hmmmm, I guess when you have little competition in such a desired area the management hasn’t got an urgency to attain excellence...

Porto Bodega Marina & RV Park

There are several places to camp in Bodega Bay but only two that I know of have hook-ups.  The one that my parents used to go to is right on Highway 1 next to a restaurant.  I’ve heard the restaurant is good.  But, in my opinion the RV park was just a parking lot with hook-ups.  A few years ago, through a web search, we found Porto Bodega Marina & RV Park and decided to try it out.


Porto Bodega is located at 1500 Bay Flat Rd., directly on Bodega Bay.  There are 58 RV sites and 31 of these are waterfront sites.  All sites have hook-ups except for 13 of the waterfront sites.  The hook-ups include water, electricity, sewer and cable.


The first time we stayed there we had a waterfront site.


This was the view out our back window.

You will pay a little more for one of these sites and...
