We took a two week vacation with 8 of our kids in our motor home and went North to visit the coast just North of San Francisco by Manchester and a later a week in the Redwoods by Myers Flat.

The reason for this post is the stop at Fort Ross. On the way to the KOA campground in Manchester along the 1, we stopped at Fort Ross. For the full history check But it all started in 1812.

This fort was pretty much completely rebuild by volunteers and now owned by the state of California. They did a fantastic job.

The next couple of pictures gives you an opportunity to step in the shoes of an carpenter 300 years back. I could not get any closer, but I was just really enjoying the moment in time. Just looking at the tools these men had to work with.

That must have been an incredible visit. The posting of the gate lock gave me another idea for more readily accessible gate!

That is such a beautiful place, and what a work shop!
It is a room one would love to spend the days inside.
Best thoughts,
