We thought Crescent City (just outside Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park) was a lovely place. I was checking the weather there for several weeks before we went and it seemed like it was always 61 and cloudy, or 61 and rainy. Great weather for a temperate rain forest!
Junie loved these seals. Or sea lions? How does one tell the difference?
Beautiful lighthouse--during low tide you can walk across the little causeway and take a tour
Sam enjoyed photographing the waves (no doubt the photos will someday go in his Magnum Opus about Light)
And the boys enjoyed getting splashed by them (not so much Abe, though . . . hiding behind his little brother? How ungallant! :))
