Springfield OR to Fortuna CA (557 kms/346 miles)

A fairly typical travel day. It was one of my favourite drives, along Hwy 126 west to the coast and down US Hwy 101S. The drive is very pretty and it is always nice to get to the ocean and see the huge waves.

Frosty leaving Springfield this morning.....



Never have our little boys far from sight......

Port Orford, OR


My driving turn.....hang on!!

Northern California coast......



I can't say that this town we are at tonight, Fortuna, is my favourite place I have ever been. It is about 20 miles south of Eureka CA. Unfortunately, when you are just buzzing through an area, you don't always see the good side of a city. It will do for tonight. We are at a nice, clean Super 8 Hotel. The Eel River Pub, across the street, was busy but the food was good.


Thought for the Day: It does not matter how slowly you go, as long as you do not stop.....Confucius

    Travel Safely and Enjoy the trip.
