A balmy 17 degrees today with blue skies and almost no wind – so much for the winter temperatures we were expecting – guess they’re still to come!
Stopped to fill up at a Shell gas station and Josh was delighted to buy an1.3 litre cup to fill with fizzy drink for $.96! Fred and I got two 16oz coffees for $2.98.
Heading towards dusk we reached the 'Avenue of Giants’ highway which goes through the Humbolt State park – a scenic drive through amazing groves of giant redwood trees
Not too long a drive till we reached the little town of Ferndale, CA which was a very pretty Victorian town all lit up with Christmas lights and a massive tree covered in lights that we could see from miles away as we approached the town. We drove around admiring the Victorian style houses and then only a short drive back to Fortuna, CA to our Comfort Inn & Suites hotel. An easy KFC for dinner.
