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.

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.

  1. In other cases, these agreements may be the standard
    kind of real estate lending within their jurisdiction. Familiarize yourself with certain regulations when it comes to your restrictions on abandoned
    properties in storage facilities. We will concentrate
    on the traffic driving service which, if done correctly, can be quite good to you
    since the vendor, as well as to customers, which
    may transform into regular clients, as is often the case with such an online business.

  2. Due to this reason, some homeowners have suffered many losses since they
    were not able to to market their properties since they have
    been rejected by the buyers. The property market
    is changing regularly with new pressures within selling,
    leasing, and property management. When you apply the ideas listed
    in the six preceding paragraphs, it is possible to greatly improve your likelihood of putting your
    hard earned money right into a property that will present you with that cash back and then some.

    I really like California. I go there very often, and it gets more and more interesting every time. But this year it turned out that I was not allowed to go to California, because there were problems with the borders. I had to look for another place to go. One man told me a good agency in Kenya, and I decided to go. Actually I wanted to go to California, because I love it so much, but after this trip, I’m not sure where to go. Kenya is very rich in wildlife and wild animals, I really enjoyed it. But I decided for myself that I will go in the future to places where I have not been. Can you give me any advice?
