Every time we visit the Eureka, California area we discover something new. In 2008 we just whizzed through town but were taken by the Victorian architecture. In 2014 we discovered the beaches at Trinidad. With Lou in 2016 we explored downtown. Today we headed out to the Samoa Peninsula west of Eureka between Humboldt Bay and the Pacific for a long walk On Samoa Beach then dinner at the historic Samoa Cookhouse. What a living history treat! Established in 1893 to serve the workers at the local sawmill, it has continued to operate and serve the local community. Meals are served family style. It’s an all you can eat of whatever they are serving. Tonight we had vegetable soup, salad, Chicken Parmagiano, green beans, oven roasted potatoes, and vanilla cake. They post their menus for the week on Facebook every Thursday. After dinner we crossed the three span Samoa Bridge and headed downtown. We parked at the waterfront for a view of the boats and the Fisherman Statue and to walk along the boardwalk. Soon we were involved in a group search for an exceedingly well hidden geocache. We didn’t make a find but did enjoy talking with fellow treasure hunters from the area and watching the sunset before heading home to Redwood Coast Cabins and RV Resort.
