Today we traveled along the scenic, craggy coastline from Gold Beach, Oregon to Crescent City, California…54 miles of spectacular viewpoints that take your breath away. The sea stacks are myriad of shapes and sizes with names like Sisters Rock, Whaleshead, House Rock, Arches and Natural Bridges. We had a wonderful time walking the trails; some meandering through fairy-like forests and then leading out to magnificent bluffs…that were rather windy!
This area is also known for its tidepools; star fish and sea anomie that attach themselves to rocks and become exposed during low tide. We had such fun exploring the beaches but these sea treasures eluded us yet for another day.
The weather was picture perfect, not foggy as is common on the coast. We picnicked along the shore and even had time to take a nap.
We also stopped in Brookings for a cup of latte and a visit to the Saturday Farmer’s Market. It was dinner time when we arrived in Crescent City. We ate at local restaurant in the harbor (Chart Room)…with seafood fresh off the boat. Our hotel is also along the waterfront with an enchanting view of Battery Point Lighthouse.
