Garberville to Ft. Bragg, Ca.

Thur - Nov. 12th

We left Garberville about 9:30 with the fog hanging in the valleys again. Just a few miles south was this 2100 year old redwood log hollowed out for a home in 1946. It took the owner
and a helper 8 months to hollow out the 42 ton section into a 7 foot by 32 foot room. The home went on tour in it's early days and remains on it's original trailer. We took another windy road from Leggett over to the coast. It was 22 miles and took us an hour. It was a tense ride meeting semis and other RVs on swithback turns. There were many curve signs saying 10, 15 and 20 MPH. Are you
kidding me? We would have had to speed up to go that fast. John says we won't need to ever take that road again. This gray whale skeleton was at MacKerricher State Park. We set up camp in Ft. Bragg and went down to Point Cabrillo State Park to see the Mendocino Light House. On the way back to camp, we stopped at Pomo Bluffs State Park in Ft. Bragg to watch the sunset.

Back to camp for pizza and wine. Blogging for Tarra, and cable and snoozing for John.

Looking forward to wineries, breweries and chocolate shops tomorrow.
