Eureka


 

We had intended to stay in Eureka before heading to Ferndale, but I wound up missing a boondocking place I'd heard about just outside of town, so we ended up staying at the Humboldt County Fairgrounds in Ferndale and drove back to Eureka for our expeditions there.
Eureka is a quaint little Victorian seaport town and this boardwalk is one of the crown jewels in it's restoration crown. See Malia's Miles page for pics of my two favorite Victorian homes there and our dining experience at Samoa Cookhouse.
After lunch at Samoa Cookhouse, a unique Eureka tradition lumberjack-family-style restaurant, we then wandered into the city park (Sequoia Park) which was a real unexpected treat. There was a lovely walk through a heavily forested area - that's mom looking like a little slit on the trail amid giant trees and lush greenery.
I climbed up a little hill for a bigger view - Hi mom!
I always love these little bridges across babbling brooks.
We got a kick watching this little girl slide down this big fallen tree.
Then there's a path that allows you to drive through a grove of ancient Sequoia trees. The shapes, colors and textures of the barks of the trees were endlessly fascinating.
