The Road to California started along the Oregon Coast in Seaside where I found these lovely flowering poppies...Then centre of this one looked so pretty framed in the orange/red of the petals.
Remember getting one of those postcards that said....wish you were here?
What a beautiful bronze of a girl about to fly a kite, was found outside a restaurant called Crabby Sue's in Canon Beach. The artist did a lovely job of capturing the concentration on her face.
Sue has some great signage around the restaurant. One time when I come down I hope to find her open.
We found the tide out, and walked out to the rocks around Haystack and found an amazing collection of starfish.
This one was hiding out in the shade.
One of the many vista points you can stop at along the way. The views are quite breath taking.
The lighthouse at the Coquille River is one of my favourite. This is taken from the Bandon-by-the-Sea side of the river.
Can you see the lady's face on this rock called Face Rock? She is looking to the right...
This bay is just to the left of Face Rock, the winds coming off the water are quite strong at times. This day there were not too bad.
This Roosevelt Elk was watching over the rest of the herd we came upon.
This painted lady in Eureka is now the home for some architects.
The Carson Mansion is now a private men's club open only to it's members. I like how the green of the house works so well with the lawns and trees on the grounds.
We walked along Main Street in Ferndale California and spotted this Victorian business front.
This lovely painted lady is now a bed and breakfast located just off Main Street.
If you look closely at the top of the front of this house you can see large O's have been attached to make the design.
This view is from later in the trip, from Hurricane Point looking back towards Big Sur.
