Crescent City to Eureka, Ca.

Sun - Nov. 8th

We sure saw elk today when we drove by the Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park on our way to Eureka. There were two herds of about 30 right next to the highway about a mile apart.

We stopped at the pretty little fishing village of Trinidad with a population of 311. That's our new home parked at the beach in the first picture. We hiked the one mile Trinidad Head Trail Loop plus a couple of side trails and the beach and pier. The views were magnificant and we could hear seals, sea birds and bouy bells in the distance.

John looks like the
thinker. Do you suppose he's thinking that we retired too soon? I doubt it!

This mural was painted on the Performing Arts Center. These two houses are on the waterfront in the Old Town area. The pink house is across the street from the other which was built in 1885 for William Carson, a pioneer lumberman. The Old Town area has many beautiful old buildings.

The last pictures are the
Fisherman Memorial and
the Table Bluff Light House
at the Woodley Island

We are camping at the fairgrounds tonight.

Lights Out!
