And Berry Cobbler

2016 Out West, California, Road Trip


From Burlington we headed south on the Avenue of the Giants, soon back onto US-101, then onto the Pacific Coast Highway with its extraordinary breathtaking views and twisting curves. About noon we paused at a scenic view area to make lunch. A T@G was also there but the owner was otherwise occupied and we didn’t have a chance to visit. At Fort Bragg we wended our way toward the beach and found some street parking near Glass Beach. Curious for a town to be famous because they once dumped their trash on the beach, but after they reclaimed the beach a wealth of broken glass bits remained. Tumbled smooth by the waves and the rocks these bits of color bring folks out to clamber around on the contours of the beach seeking brightly colored bits  of the man made silica material. We found evidence of white milk bottles, green cola bottles, and amber beer bottles but weren’t successful at finding and blue apothecary glass, red tail light lenses, or the nearby geocache. Once we all decided to quit while we were still having fun we headed south to Manchester, set up on Site 11 at the KOA, and headed into Point Arena and The Pier Chowder House where we enjoyed a view of the water, good seafood, and amazing Blueberry and Blackberry Cobbler topped with vanilla Haagen Daz! And yes, it can get better than this! When we drove out to the lighthouse point, we spotted a couple of blue whales! We could see their periodic spouts and their backs!

All Because of an Eclipse

All Because of an Eclipse

It was a fabulous opportunity to not only view the 2024 Solar Eclipse from within the path of totality but also to enjoy a five day weekend with friends from the T@B trailer community at Ohio’s East Harbor State Park on the shore of Lake Erie.
