Be aware, Caltrans and the Highway Patrol will frequently recommend that you not travel during stormy weather even though safe, alternate routes exist between your home and Serenisea.

We suggest that you call us if you are unsure of the best route to take, allow extra time for the trip, drive carefully, and enjoy the adventure.
