Day 18 - Welcome to California!
We didn’t get away from the hotel in Newport until noon. Lynne wanted to go for a long walk on the beach. I had work to do before heading out.
It was a pretty uneventful day. The scenery along the pacific was amazing in spots, but the weather was very overcast and very misty along waters edge. Inland wasn’t much better.
We found a place to stay in Brookings Oregon. It was the last town in Oregon. We found a great looking place right on the beach again, but they wanted 50% more for a room with a partial view than the room with a complete view last night. We decided to carry on into Crescent City California, about 45 minutes away.
This town seems to be one of the many poor towns that we’ve traveled through. Not our first choice of places to stay, but it’ll do. We’ll head on out to the Redwood Forest tomorrow. It looks like we’ll make San Francisco by the weekend some time.
