Northcoast Trip

Malcolm planned a glorious and peaceful vacation to the coast for us. Our first stop was Eureka where we used to live for a few years We stopped and visited with some neighbors who were surprised and delighted to see us. We drove around and stopped at one of our favorite places to eat, the Samoa Cookhouse near the beach. They have family style food which is delicious and make their own bread. We had ham and fried chicken. They offer a different menu each day. It was yummy! Then we drove to Ferndale and walked to all the fun shops and looked at the colorful Victorian homes. We drove a little further South bought some cheese and French bread for lunch then down to the Redwoods for pictures and shopping. Malcolm gave me an open budget so I found some treasures from the area. We enjoyed driving through all the forests and took pictures and finally drove home. We got lots of sleep and just enjoyed being together!! Thank you to my honey of a husband for a terrific few days!!!
Redwood Grove of Trees. It was so peaceful and beautiful. We never tire of going there and appreciating the great beauty of these magnificent trees
Victorian Inn in Ferndale. We plan to spend some time there next time we are up North. It is just beautiful and historic. We shopped in this quaint little village and bought some treasures to bring home
Malcolm shot this amazing view of a Redwood tree
We went to the Redwoods and took picture of each of us at the Founder's tree - one of the largest trees in the Redwood forest. It is an awesome sight

Looks like fun. Seeing those pictures of the fisherman and the mansion bring back childhood memories.
