We hit the road towards Eureka. The drive was just stunning.
Such beauty everywhere.
The historic Benbow Inn. Our KOA was just on the other side of the river.
A day of rest was the plan. We read, napped and walked the dogs. Then we were off to a nice dinner at the inn.
It was the Inns first night back after being closed for the stupid Covid crap. It was nice to be out for dinner but for us not worth what we paid for it. We have learned that my cooking is so much better.
We arrived to Aunt Natalie and Uncle Dave’s. Next door is Trina and Jeremy, Martin’s cousins. We parked right out front. What a nice visit. Aunt Natalie and Uncle Dave took us for a tour around Eureka.
The next day was pig harvest day. Trina and Jeremy harvested three pigs the day before and there was two left to chop up.
Family arrives to help
Knowing the family was working the famous Miss Clara brought food for the sole.
The next morning was breakfast at Uncle Dave’s and Aunt Natalies.
Family gathering has been a no no for some people. For us we were so thankful that we were welcomed to visit.
We enjoyed ourselves so much. So thankful for our family.
Since checking the cameras at home and collecting information from our neighbors there was no reason to hurry home.
So we hit the road for Mount Shasta as a kid my parents took us camping at Mt. Shasta. I remember running down this trail to the water. My parents said, “Don’t run you will hurt yourself.” Well it was so much fun till I tripped over a root going across the trail and landed on my stomach. I couldn’t say a word for one I knocked the wind out of myself. I couldn’t breathe. Two a just didn’t want to hear those words, “we told you so.” So I sucked up the pain. Didn’t cry and walked carefully down the rest of the way to the water.
We stretched our legs with a walk downtown Weaverville. Stopped into the ice cream shop and saw the tractor. Gave Martin an idea for little stripped down lawn tractors ratted out for the kids to drive in the parades.
We spent the night at the KOA at the base. Our fun begins again tomorrow.
Till next time….
