Move from Silverdale to San Diego - Day 3

(1/1)

Lytton:
Woke up from the bed at the Ocean Suites in Brookings, Oregon. Got ready for another day of the trip. It was already almost 10:00 AM PDT as I got on back on 101 once again. Then, I entered the state of California but then I had to stop at some weird custom station. I wonder what that is. Anyway, the lady at one of the booths asked me if I had any fruit. I said no, since I didn't like any fruit. She let me go while I stopped at the Denny's in Crescent City. Experienced the first freeway stretch since Route 3 back in Washington. Got a small breakfast before going down through the Redwood Forest. No, I did not stop at the tourist attractions except for one with the Paul Bunyan statue up front. It was Trees of Mystery, took the gondola up to a vista point where I looked at the beauty of Pacific Ocean and Redwood trees with no sounds of cars passing by.

Tried some of their fudge before going down near Arcata, where I had to stop for gas. Thank god for no gas attendants unlike Oregon. Got back on as I entered the city of Eureka. It was pretty interesting, too bad I couldn't get on the bridge that served CA State Route 255. There was a Marie Callender's and since I heard they had pretty good chicken pot pies, I stopped by. It was near the Bayshore Mall. I hated the food there, it was totally disgusting and left a small tip for the waitress.

I skipped the Avenue of Giants, because, fuck that. I rather not take a tourist road. Drove down a little farther until I got on the famous Route 1 in Leggett. There was a lot of curves to go through and it was foggy by the time I reached Westport. I arrived at Fort Bragg, where I checked into the hotel for the night. It was Surf Motel I believe. I also got some snacks to snack on at the local Safeway which wasn't far from the hotel.

Lights out.
