Hi everyone, I'm hoping you can five me some input on a trip my husband and I are planning to WA, OR and CA from Sept 28 to Oct 12 2012.
We are flying into Seattle on Sept 28th, renting a car and driving up to La Conner staying at the Wild Iris Inn.
We would like to do a half day kayak trip before we leave for Leavenworth WA.
We are thinking of staying at the All Seasons River Inn.
Then driving onto Mount Rainier, staying at the Almost Paradise.
Our next stop, Cannon beach. (Not sure where to stay)
Then we will drive the coast road to Eureka, CA. for a quick stop before going onto Sonoma Valley where we would like to stay at a B and B preferably on a winery. This and yosemite are probably the most important part of our trip.
Our next stop, Yosemite Valley, again still not sure where to
We need to be back in San Francisco by Oct 12.
So, keeping in mind we like more secluded but mid comfy inns or B&B's, we need some ideas on where would be the best somewhat out of the way places to stay; places we need to see and those we should avoid. Our timetable is completely open.
We like to fish, picnic, collect shells and stones/pebbles, kayaking, unusual towns like Leavenworth which have a European culture; big open spaces, ranches/farms; good resturants to name but a few.
I am slightly limited in mobility but I can walk/ride my mini scooter (whenever the distances is too far and where its possible). Of course, sadly, hiking for me is out, but my husband loves to, so hopefully he'll have the opportunity to hook up with someone at one of the places we stay. We are open to other suggestions for things to do.
We have come up with this itinerary from reading and researching the forums on this site but any further input would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks, Lorraine
