Day 95 Redwoods State Park to Eureka

After 2 days in Caifornia I have still not had the opportunity to wear my super cool new shades replacing my third lost pair. It is quite cold, damp and misty at tbis end of California.

Following the magnificent Redwoods the ride this morning was pretty dull with nothing of any  consequence to photograph. Things can only get better.

And they did. After a nice lunch at the trendy Beachcomber cafe in Trinidad  ( also appeared to be a meeting place for Mums and toddlers) we picked up a cycle path that took us closer to the sea and the 'not quite as good as Oregon' coastal scenery.

The final 5 miles of the day were on the very busy US101 to Eureka only to find that the Eureka KOA campsite was actually 3 miles behind us in Arcata. That will teach me to read the guide book properly. Still it gave us the opportunity to feast at Mcdonalds and get the blog done. But still no sunshine!
