If you find your going to be up in Sonoma County during the next month or so think about a drive down Hwy 116 to the coast to Jenner where the Russian River meets ocean. The Steelhead are running and you can actually watch the harbor seals catch them right at the mouth of the river. Lots of bird activity too as small crabs are washed ashore. The Rivers End Restaurant has a perfect lunch or dinner time view of all the harbor activity and great food including a great wine list. If you want to stretch your legs and walk the shore Goat Rock Beach has great parking access and you can walk the beach and watch all the activity first hand. Most of the staff at the Rivers End Restaurant have gone through the Sonoma County CTA (Certified Tourism Ambassador) training and can make great recommendations of locations nearby to visit and points of interest to finish out your day. Tell Bert the owner that Locals sent you.
