see the Redwoods
I can now say that I’ve crossed something off of my bucket list. This past week David and I traveled down the Oregon coast into California to camp in Redwood National Forest. I have been mesmerized by the Redwoods for quite some time and therefore couldn’t believe that I now live close enough to DRIVE to them!
David doesn’t get a lot of time off of school and work, so it was a real treat to have him all to myself for three whole days. Though we bickered over the correct way to put our new tent up, we had a wonderful time. I will forever consider David a true gentleman after he offered to walk me to the bathroom at 2AM so that a bear wouldn’t eat me.
We saw hundreds of miles of the Pacific Ocean, saw unbelievably massive trees that I’ll never forget, found a secluded beach and watched a pack of dolphins catch dinner, ate a seafood feast, and watched seals bask in the afternoon sun. David also fashioned a new hand out of a rotting crab claw. GREAT times!
