Slept deeply, and no ghosties seen. Still no internet signal yet, but there is cell access for me. But Bryan's cell service hasn't kicked in yet.
We had breakfast at the B&B with the owners. They were nice. I wish the whole place was in a different city. We stayed longer than we had intended just listening to their stories about guests and ghosts and such. I was sad to be leaving Abigail's Elegant Victorian, but not so sad to be leaving the city of Eureka. We had read about a very nice victorian mansion in the city, the Carson House, so we decided to check it out. It was the beautiful. We can't go inside because it is a private club, but the outside was phenomenal.
After we left Eureka, we headed north to the redwoods. I really liked walking through the redwoods. They were beautiful. We had originally stopped at the information center for the park we were in, but if you stay for longer than a half an hour you have to pay. So we just quickly stopped off at the center checked it out and drove down the road. We parked just about a mile later and got out and hiked, and didn't have to pay. That seemed odd. Anyways... We had our picture taken next to a large tree that had a sign in front of it that read Big Tree. We continued out drive and detoured aling the coast. It was beautiful. We pulled over at one point when the road had become gravel, and looked out at an overlook at the beach and pacific way down below us. It was amazing. There was a pickup and a man down there and they were so small. We stayed for a while just taking in how beautiful it was.
We needed to get going so that we could get to Ashland and Colonel Silsby's Bed and Breakfast before it got too late.
The rest of the drive was actually nice until we got inland to I5. Then it was failry boring civilization looking stuff (But I did see a Toys "R" Us) We got to Ashland and the B&B and checked in. It is nice. Not in the main house, again. We have out own Jacuzzi with purple and yellow rubber duckies.
We went out to explore the town and get something to eat. 5 seperate people wearing Democratic National Convention t-shirts asked me if I wanted to help get Bush out of office. It was annoying after the second person. I wished they could just stick to one street corner. It was hard to find a restaurant that we could both agree upon, but finally we found one. It was okay.
Then we went back to the B&B. We talked a bit to some of the other guests and then went to the room.
