My Roadtrip to Redding, CA with Dad

Posted on

This past weekend I took a lovely road trip up to Redding with my Dad! It was an early morning and we hit the road by 6am to get up there in time to have some fun. It took us about 4.5 hours with a couple stops. Boy, was I tired after all that driving  but it was great chatting with my dad. He loves to talk and told me SO many stories I had never heard. Including why he lived in Marin and all about the day he decided to go to Sausalito with his buddy Ken and met my mom!! It was so cute.

We went to Redding to check on my dads second home which is used as a rental right now. I was so excited because it was the first time I had been up there since he bought it! The house was gorgeous..right on the corner with a huge lot and pool in the back. We took some pictures, looked around and we were on our way. The rest of the day was spent at Turtle Bay Exploration Park, Whiskeytown Lake, Trinity Salmon Hatchery and back to Redding and then down to Anderson to our hotel. Turtle Bay was absolutely stunning as you can see from the photos below. I had so much fun with my dad and really enjoyed our quality time! Even Gracie had a blast!

The sundial is over 20 stories high!

Recognize that cute lil dog looking into the river?

Everything was breathtaking. I love nature

My dad didn’t like the fact these men had a dog out there scaring the fish!

Gorgeous fountain at Turtle Bay

It was such a hot day-103 degrees!! Poor Gracie.

This is the view from outside the house. That is Mt Shasta between those two trees!

The glass bridge…I wish we were there at night to see this!
