This past weekend D and I drove up 101 to Eureka to visit my lovely Aunt Lynda. It had been a long overdue trip to come up and visit, and D had never been up there with me, so off we went. This isn't a drive for the faint hearted, while stunningly beautiful the more north you go through the redwoods and the Avenue of the Giants, 6 hours in the car is not easy.

After the obligatory cup of morning coffee, we made our way to Arcata, a small town just north of Eureka, to go to the farmers market and main square. 

A rare sunny warm day

After we headed on down to Fortuna to get some lunch at Eel River Brewing.

The over to Loleta to taste some fresh homemade cheese :) nom nom nom.

Fun Fact: Eureka is the westernmost city of more than 25,000 residents in the 48 contiguous states.
