DAY 2 The next morning found Alicia and I very tired as we slept VERY little that night. I was afraid that was a sign of things to come but we did sleep well every other night. We headed down 101 to Eureka. We stopped off a few times at various beaches. It is amazing how each beach can be so different. They will all have something a bit different then the last. More shells, no shells, more rocks, great tidepools, secluded, etc. It was a nice nice day!
After the beach trips we stopped off in Crescent City at a Marine World. The price was HIGH for the normal fish tanks and marine tanks but we did get to pet a shark! And the kids really enjoyed the sea lion and seal show at the end.
And then a shark ate us!
Finally we got down near the Redwoods! We stopped in at the Trees of Mystery and talked with Paul Bunyon and got icecream. Alicia was a bit frightened of Paul and hid behind her brother. The guy talking inside was really good with kids. We FINALLY made it to Eureka and checked into the hotel that would be base for 2 nights. This hotel provided breakfast and light dinners. So we just ate the taco dinner they had there when we checked in and swam in the pool before bed.
Well, I will post more later. This is a long post already! So Day 3-6 to come.
