      ... CCC era state park visitor center, where we picked up some maps. Now that we were almost done we could figure out where we'd been. While the Newton B. Drury parkway was nice, it did not seem as impressive as the Avenue of the Giants.

      The actual Redwood National Park was adjacent here and I wanted to make an effort to see it so I could add it to the list of national parks I'd been ...

      Left hotel at 9am and went over the road to Safeway to buy our sandwich lunch! I did not have a club canard to get discounts but a little old lady behind me swiped her card and saves us over $2! How nice!! And before you say it, I am on the way to being a little old lady!, we spent some time in Bandon a quaint seaside town which has almost been bypassed. There were fishermen on the boardwalk and lots of carvings done from ...

But whatever, I got on my way eventually ...

I don't think it got above 65 all day, knew this though since we are in northern CA. Our first stop was to visit the Sea Lion Caves in Florence, OR. We went down an elevator to view them, pretty neat to see all them laying around on ...

      ... in the town of Arcata at around 7:00 and checked into the "Hotel Arcata", which from prior experience, is a great place to stay right off of the square in the center of town. One of the features of the hotel is the adjoining Japanese restaurant, where we feasted on Sushi… a very welcome relief from the regimen of grilled/fried meat, sandwiches, pasta, pizza and occasional salads we’d consumed for the better part of the prior 3 ...
