Albion Flat to Eureka Ca.

We liked the place so much we did not leave the campground 'till noon. Be prepared for the coastal hwy, it will be slow because you stop often. After driving about 20 min. north we came to Big River State Park, another beautiful place. Wide sandy beaches, peaceful and quiet. We spent at least a couple of hours there watching a couple of painters working to capture the scenery. I think I repeat myself too often but we shortly had to stop again, the coast is so rugged and photogenic I had to burn a few mega bites off the memory card. Fort Bragg was only a few more miles we stocked up at Safeway and finally have seen a car wash with a bay outside and I washed the motor home. Not far north of Fort Bragg the hwy runs trough the Redwood Forest and comes back to the beach just south of Eureka. It was late in the afternoon, time to look for a place for the night. In Eureka Wal Mart is in a mall with a shared parking lot and security said no but recommended the county fairground with an Rv park only 2 miles east of down town. Nothing fancy but a nice and quiet park with full hook up and Wi Fi for 25$/night.  ( Redwood Acres Fairgrounds RV Park.)
