Crescent City, Calif.

This morning we welcome new followers Luci and Loree who join us from Oregon. Luci and Loree have their own blog that you can check out here: Life with Luci & Loree

Since we settled in here on the Klamath River I've been trying to get a good photo of our Pelican neighbors in flight with some degree of frustration. I took this photo early this morning but hope to get a better one soon.

Crescent Beach couldn't be more aptly named.

More barking sea lions in The Crescent City Harbor. The Battery Point lighthouse is on a small island in the background.

We timed the tide right (luck) and were able to walk out to the lighthouse.

Later in the day we visited Jedediah Smith Redwood State Park. This was an amazing 7 or 8 mile slow drive through a grove of the biggest trees we've ever seen.

It's really hard to photograph the magnificence of these unbelievable trees; you really do have to be here in person. Are they even more grand in The National Park?


  1. We love it down there around Crescent City. Donna and I spent some time in Jedediah Smith Redwood State Park on our honeymoon...many moons ago!

  2. I don't think you could get a better picture of a pelican. That one is beautiful. We love that area. And you are so right - you really cannot do justice to those trees unless you see them in person. They are so huge and beautiful.

  3. glad to see you made it to the Battery Point Lighthouse and the Redwoods!!!
