Travel: West Coast Road Trip - The Redwoods and Eureka

On Jack's birthday, we left Bandon and headed further south to Eureka. Our goal for the day was to embark on a 7 mile hike through the Redwoods. Not usually Jack's cup of tea, but "when in California..."

There's no excuse to not see the Redwoods in northern California. The opportunities are endless to hike, drive through trees or even jump outside your car for a photo.

The Redwoods and Eureka, California

We stopped at numerous roadside attractions on our way down to Eureka (after stopping at Mattie's Pancake House, of course!) We specifically stopped to see Big Tree and Chandelier Tree. We later hiked part of James Irvine/Miners Ridge Loop, Fern Canyon and Gold Bluffs Beach. 








That evening, we finally made it to Eureka. Truthfully, there isn't much to see or do in Eureka, but all we needed was a place to stay for the evening on our way down the coast (plus, Eureka had an Applebee's, which is what Jack wanted for his birthday dinner). We stayed at Adam and Deanna's garden cottage, and it was a dream come true. Their guest house is located in their backyard and is a newly redone suite. Upon our arrival, Adam and their adorable children greeted us in the backyard, along with their dog. They were sweet, welcoming and chatted with us about the city, things to do on our trip, and more about their family business (Dick Taylor Craft Chocolate - absolutely delicious!) They had fresh flowers, chocolate and coffee for us upon our arrival. They were so sweet and welcoming and made us feel so at home.

Jack was so happy that he even tried some yoga.
