    ... 8217;s Market in Arcata so the whole group of us went there along with Emilie’s brother Alex, who lives nearby. We stocked up on quite a lot of fruits and vegetables. It was like a step back in time watching the people who were there. Lots of “hippie, flower children” looks from the 60’s. It was quite interesting but the vegetables were outstanding so we stocked up. Vendors were set up around the city square in ...

    ... sideswipe the other cars (ok, i'm exaggerating). From there we went directly to the Lady Bird Johnson Grove for a quick hike among giants. They were very impressive. One couple we crossed a few times on the trail and chatted, then met later at a local grocery store. After talking to him it sounds like we will see each other again tomorrow on the Lost Coast road. We left The Grove and heading back south on 101 to our room ...

    We found that Trinidad has a pier so we walked out to look at the boats and water then bought our fresh cod and headed for home. We thought the 60 degrees was cold but this is the average weather even in August and September. Route 101 is the main road along the coast and sometimes it is 2 lanes and then turns to a 4 lane freeway. We found out that there was a fire in the 1940's that destroyed all the fur and spruce trees and half ...
