Salmon Creek, California

Believe it or not, this is where we used to live when I was a teenager. It’s 75 miles north of San Francisco on Highway 1. Three miles north of Bodega Bay (of Alfred Hitchcocks “The Birds” fame).

I was thrilled to find this picture on the internet yesterday, the 500 square foot cinder block house we used to live in is still there too.
In fact the whole place looks exactly the same. This picture was taken in 2003, obviously the winter rains had not started.

I’m planning a trip to California next month and thought I would drive out to Salmon Creek (I havn’t been there in 15 years) from my moms house in Davis. After that I’ll drive down to Los Angeles to vistit family and friends and take my son to the Origami in Science, Mathematics and Education conference at Cal Tech.

    I have been to Bodega Bay. My grandparents lived in Healdsburg, and that is where my grandfather always took us to the ocean, when we visited them from Oklahoma. Very pretty area, you lived in.

    The sweater you have started below is beautiful. I am not a knitter (wish I was) but my daughter is very good at it.

    I lived there too! My father was a SP ranger 1950-55. We lived in the SP house in Salmon Creek,

    I never lived at Salmon Creek, but we used to go there all of the time while growing up. I miss the northcoast beaches even though they were usually cold and windy.
