Choose a different way and drive along HWY 1 on the coast either South or North. To reach Hwy 1 continue on Stage Road, a long and winding, meandering path or return to Pescadero Creek Road. Both roads end at Hwy 1.

April 2021 First Sunday Drive - Grand Island Mansion

Walnut Grove

Delta Drive IV – April 2021

April 18th - 2021 “First Sunday (ish)” Drive – Fourth Annual “Delta Drive” to the Grand Island Mansion (“GIM”). 

The weather was fabulous, and the drive was fantastic!  We had a total of 13 Mercedes-Benzes, and 20 people showed up at this event.

After having a group chat about cars, and consumed our cups of coffee, we take off around 10:30 and headed out to GIM.

The scenery was gorgeous, I can’t believe these back roads exist near San Francisco Bay Area, it was quiet, and we were cruising along by ourselves for almost 2 hours.   When we reached Grand Island mansion, the historical GIM is already an eyeful. The buffet served was out of the ordinary in this historical building, it felt like we were back to the 19th century.  After the feast, I had to have a siesta under a shade before heading back home.
