Travel Diary - Wednesday July 29, 2015

Date: Wednesday July 29, 2015
Theme/Title: Driving Down The Coast - Northern California
Overview: Stopped at the visitor's center to get a hiking suggestion, asked for 1-2 hours of moderate, was given 40 minutes on an 'accessible' trail. Amazed by the redwoods. Drove along the coast, including Highway 1. Evening walk around Mendocino. Late 'check-in' at the Tiny House we rented through Airbnb - wandering a closed Solar Living Institute after dark looking for someone to help us open the gate, found assistance from some nice hippies living there. Went out to McDonalds for dinner.
Woke-up: 8:00am in Crescent City
Transportation/Distance: 2km hike, 2km walk, 475km drive
Meals: Continental breakfast at the hotel, no fruit available. Pepsi Max, Cherry. Snacks in the car. Chai Frappe. Chicken Nuggets.
Highlight of the Day: Walking through the redwoods forest.
Song of the Day: Hotel California - House of the Raising Sun - How Bizarre  - (The music prepared by Teri has been sorted alphabetically by song title, this was a particularly great streak.)
Tomtom wants us to turn around...
Quote of the Day: "Please make your next available u-turn" -- the lady on Tomtom, Teri's GPS machine. She was not happy at our choice to go off course and take the highway closer to the ocean.
Night's Accommodation: Tumbleweed Tiny House, Hopland, California
