Stopped for a picnic lunch in Trinidad, CA (just outside Eureka). It was very beautiful and comfortable (the breezy, cool weather is amazing).

We know what burls are (knots of wood). We know what live means. But "live burls"??? We didn't stay to find out!

Paul Bunyan probably knows what live burls are (Paul Bunyan statue at the Trees of Mystery, which was closed when we got there). Also, how can trees be closed?

We found a little bit of home here in Oregon!

We're staying the weekend with Daniel's grandma, Aunt Jackie, and Uncle Peter in Jacksonville, Oregon. It looks like it will be a fun weekend!!

Did the drive through tree in Leggett. After driving through and getting pictures and video, we headed to Ferndale. In Ferndale we met our hosts and shared dinner. Everything was made from scratch, and she even made a raisin-based cake, having found out earlier that Selma is the Raisin Capital of the World. We had very interesting conversations over dinner, we even found out they met online too and have been married for 15 years.

Tomorrow we will explore Ferndale before heading off to Jacksonville, Oregon!
