Crescent City is a small town in California, just a few miles south the border with Oregon. We stayed 10 days there for choice and circumstance.
At a first glance, the city didn’t seem to have much to offer. But at the end of our stay, we had accomplished a lot. From there we visited the Redwood National Park, with its incredible 300ft tall trees. We also drove back to Oregon to go down under, visiting one of the few marble caves in the US. As small as it is, the city has a huge Wal Mart store, which Adriana and Raquel visited twice to restock Pesto’s fridge, freezer and pantry. The long stay, coupled with some rainy days, allowed us to press on with homeschooling as well.
The fact that they have a brand new, well fitted marina just added to the comfort factor and may have encouraged us to stay a little longer while waiting for a large swell to subside outside of the breakwater.
I will let the pictures below tell the rest of the story.
I will wrap up with a few shots I took just after editing this post for the first time. The weather was improving, but a patch of fog set in during the night and persisted through the morning 24hrs prior to our departure. It was predicted in the forecast, still, fog always brings a certain element of anxiety with it. Thankfully there was no forecast prediction of fog for our intended time of departure.
We kept watching the weather for a proper window to depart. And if conditions don’t change from the forecast, by the time this post is published we shall be sailing steadily toward Eureka, our last stop before San Francisco. Have a great Sunday !
