Random Road Trip Day 9 – Exploring Trinidad, CA

Slept in my van on a side street in Eureka, CA. Drove up Highway 101 to the next town for breakfast in Arcata. Then spent the day exploring Trinidad. They have a little organic coffee house that also serves up free wi-fi so I helped myself to both.

Trinidad Lighthouse

There is a beautiful path up to the top of the hill on the right that gives an excellent view of the town:

The path is through a very thick and lush bushes that are about eight feet high:

And here is a view of the beach from the hill:

I rode my bike seven miles up the coastline to Patrick’s Point State Park which is full of cute little brown rabbits.


And here’s a pic of the ocean as I rode my bike back from Patrick’s Point State Park:


I sat for one more look at the bay before I left, and a silky black cat came by for a visit:


It was nice to see a friendly cat. It must have thought that I was missing the ten cats that live with my family -  Spark, Simon, Sasaur, Cally, Teeters,  Hankster, Buzzard, Snagger, Buster, and Alien Pod.

Now contrary to the “random” nature of my road trip, I do have a couple appointments I must meet. I need to be in Veneta (near Eugene) tomorrow for the first day of the Organ Country Fair, and then in Lacey (near Olympia) on Saturday for my brother-in-laws birthday party. So I needed to travel a bit today. I am writing this from Grants Pass, Oregon, and plan on sleeping somewhere near Eugene tonight. Along the road I saw this famous statues at the Trees of Mystery site:

I first saw these items when I was about 7 years old when my family drove down the Oregon coast.

That’s it for today! The trip just keeps getting better.

    Sounds like the effects of the latest miracle cure. Being unable to achieve an erection once in a while is
    fairly common. In addition to all those, it helps the circulatory health, blood vessel health
    and has ingredients that have shown to be a nutritional support for mental alertness and enhances vitality

    When someone writes an paragraph he/she keeps the plan of a
    user in his/her mind that how a user can know it. Therefore that’s why
    this piece of writing is amazing. Thanks!

    In the beginning you generally play whatever you
    like, later it’s useful to communicate with your teammembers before the match begins so that you have a balanced setup and not 5 champions of the same kind.

    Udyr, unlike Warwick, can serve as your team’s tank or off-tank even when starting in the jungle, making him
    a different but very powerful tactical choice.

    Caring for ones self is very important because as part
    of the chain of life, we are not only responsible for our self,
    but we should also be concerned with others health care as well.
    Clinical studies have shown honey to help reduce the duration of
    outbreaks and speed up the healing of sores. Another
    effective herbal remedy for genital herpes would be to brew three tbsp of cut lemon leaves in one and a half cup of boiling water.

    Undeniably believe that that you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be at the net
    the simplest thing to take note of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed whilst other people think about worries that
    they plainly do not recognise about. You managed
    to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the entire thing without having side-effects , other people can take a signal.

    Will probably be again to get more. Thank you
