Fort Bragg / Mendocino: 7/8/2007

Warning: inane content ahead.  It is a journal of what we did while on vacation.  It is not particularly well-written, and should you decide to read it, you will likely experience an overwhelming sense of boredom similar to watching someone else’s home videos.  Proceed with caution.

Time to go home.  After packing up, we headed off to breakfast at the Home Style Café.  Man, are those good eats.  I had Linguica, eggs, potatoes, and biscuits.  Oh man, it’s good stuff.  For you Woodlanders out there, I’d say it’s as good as, if not better than, breakfast at the Ranch Kitchen.

After breakfast and a quick Starbucks break, we headed north out of Fort Bragg to see the redwoods.  There is some beautiful coast line up there, and the redwoods are spectacular.


We paid the $5 to drive through the “Chandelier Drive-Thru Tree,” one of the most underwhelming experiences of my life.  We drove out the other side, looked at each other and said, “yay.”  Yes.  A lowercase yay.


We made it all the way up to Garberville before turning around and heading for home.  Benbow looks like a nice area, but it’s a bit remote.  Hopefully someday we’ll get back up there again.  It’s pretty nice country.

T-man was great throughout the whole trip.  He spent a lot of time in his car seat, but he didn’t complain a bit.  He was a little fussy at night, but we think that it was because he was out of his element.  Hopefully things will return to normal this week.

If you’ve made it this far, I commend you.  Also, you are a masochist, but, hey, if it was worth it, who am I to judge?
