      ... pictures of the Redwoods and learning about the trees themselves, we made the last push to Eureka, CA where we found another KOA to stay the night in. Once again, another fabulous meal was made by Ible and another roaring fire was provided by yours truly. After our planning for the next day we retired to the tent early and rested ourselves while we could.
      Now, all this brings me to the events of today, October 17th. We woke up much ...

      ... winter coat. They fast during the month & use the sand for sunscreen. It's really quite an amazing site!

      Hwy 1 has very little development & large sections are National Forest & State Parks. So bathrooms are few & far between.

The first thing I saw when we arrived at the campground was a ninja squirrel that scrapped itself along the road like a soldier. ...

      ... Carousel Inn. It turned out it was on the same street as our hotel and even closer to the Boardwalk. We thankfully caught Mike Schmidt just as his work day was ending.

      Then we headed to the wharf for some more exploring. The classics like Stagnaro's and Marini's Munchies were still there along with a few new stylish additions (i.e. Firefish which Mike recommended).

      At the end of the pier was ...

      Today was a planned, "take it easy" day. The plan was to visit a giant redwood forest just outside Santa Cruz and then maybe catch some waves. What actually happened was we spent all morning trying to unlock and reactivate Sarah's phone which APPEARED to fail so we drove to AT&T to see if they could make it happen but they could not either. So, believing that my phone was already unlocked we got directions to another ...
