    We looked at our road map and google map and figured it will be at least a 5 to 6hr drive from Point Arena to Carmel. So we left at 6:30
    am and took of in darkness and foggy shore lines, but when daylight emerged the coastline was stunning. Lot's of hills and curves and I wish I had power Steering. The GPS was set to shortest distance to carmel and that meant going through DownTown San Francisco. I can't understand that one program sends us one way and the other GPS another way. Any how, we drove up and down some of those hills and my clutch got a work out. There is no room for rolling back. The drill was clutch in, hand break pulled as tight as it can be and at take off
    let clutch out and ease off on hand break. I finally made it out of down tow. and back onto the free way. Golden gat bridge was partially in Fog, but still visible. We arrived at the hotel just on time to have a late lunch , clean up the car and meet some friends which I made over the internet.
    Tomorrow we are off into the hills and some wine tasting.

    Fritz,
    Years ago Leslie and I drove a rented BMW Z3 along the Cabrillo Highway (coastal) from San Francisco to Carmel. You are in for a treat! In those days, the 17 Mile Drive in Monterey had no travel restrictions, so we drove it at midnight (top down) under a full moon. Enjoy!

    Mark we had a great ride and today they took 66 912 Porsches into the hills and I tell you, it was a great ride. Having lots of fun with the 912 group. Tomorrow is a car show and than we will drive the 17 mile drive.

    I am to lazy to type today. We are having a ball and the drive to the Wine tasting was a blast. 66 cars from the same type up and down a windy road is a sight to be seen.
    Tomorrow we are slowly heading north to Seattle and Mt. Baker and Boing Factory. That will take us 3 days and more sight seeing.

    We made it to Seattle and parked the 912 on the trailer and took the Cayenne into Down Town Seattle. Parked the car at the Space needle and took the Mono Rail into City centre. Fromthere we walked to Pikes market and strolled through and sampled some different cuisine. Across from the market we found a bakery and I tell you I was in Heaven. The chees monger
    had some great cheese to sample. Mary enjoyed the fish market and we spend at least 2 hr wondering around, than it was time for lunch and the restaurants on the water front are just the place to eat. Back up to the Market we bought some beer and some sausages for supper back onto the mono rail to our car for unloading and than we went and checked out the
    glassblower museum. CHIHULY Garden and Glass. I tell you some people have more talent than I have.
    Tomorrow we are heading North again with a stop over at Darryls Garage. Can't drive by without meeting Darryl in person.
    We will spend some time up around Blain Washington, befor we finally cross the boarder into Canada.

    Hi every body, our trip is coming to an end. One more day and we will be at home. Day before yesterday we drove up from Seattle to Visit darryl and his collection and we where lucky enough to meet Lisa. From Darryl we drove up to Blain Washington to meet another Porsche friend. Yesterday we drove up to Mount baker and hiked around. What a great view from top of the world. On evening we went to a BBQ and let off some steam.This morning we crossed over into Canada and are at this point right in the middle of the Rocky Mountain range. Off course we had to stop at a winery and taste some of their wines and ended up with another case of British Columbia wine.
