Beautiful Redwood Forest Plus

After getting some much needed office work done this morning. We took off to see the Redwood forest. We have seen them before BUT it sure surprised us at how big and majestic these trees are. We drove around many of them. We drove through a whole bunch of them.

And then took a short hike through a forest.

The view looking up! Wow!

I was glad to see this stump for it gives you something to have a reference point. Some of these trees are hundreds of years old. This must have been one of the older ones.

We had good time even though the sky was overcast and rainy. Here I was trying to get a picture of the sun coming down through the clouds. It was the first sun we have seen in many days!

We saw that there was another lighthouse. So we decided to check it out. I am fascinated with lighthouses.

We could actually walk out to the lighthouse when the tide was out…Can you see the partial road coming from the lighthouse?

We did walk out and got to see things up close. This is Battery Point lighthouse. It is a working lighthouse. There were no tours today. But we did get to see the scenery.

Then we went to get some groceries and when we came out there was sunshine. So we set off to get a picture of this beautiful colorful sunset on the Pacific Ocean.

Well, I end our trek today into the Redwood Forest with one that I made look old fashioned. I hope you like it!

I do hope you are enjoying our trip south. We are heading out again tomorrow.

Love to you,
