With our stomachs full, we started to head back towards Santa Rosa. We chose to take the road that would take us through the town of Bodega and Sebastopol. We took this route because it's probably the most direct route to Santa Rosa but also because we wanted to see the Potter Schoolhouse (in Bodega) that was used in Alfred Hitchcock's movie The Birds. It was interesting to see the school house and try and remember the scenes in the movie. The people that own the building have a small gift shop that contains Hitchcock movie memorabilia. It definitely got us into the mood to rent the movie so we could see the school house and other local sites that Hitchcock included in his film. The day ended by eventually connecting with Hwy 101 and heading north to our campsite. This was a nice loop tour (about 7 hours total) that offered us the diversity that the Sonoma County coast has to bear.
