Florence to Timber Cove Inn-Day 5

After spending some time shopping in Florence,
we had to hit the road.
We had 300 miles to drive to get to Ferndale.
Soon after arriving in California you see
Paul Bunyan and his ox Babe.
We took a picture with Paul, went through the gift shop,
but we didn't pay to see the Trees of Mystery.

I wanted to stay in Ferndale because it looks like a
"dollhouse" town.

We stayed in the Victoria Inn.
The window above the flag was our room.

The Inn had a nice restaurant where we had dinner and breakfast.
We did a little shopping and then we were off.

We traveled through the "Avenue of the Giants".

Isn't this an awesome tree?

Of course, you can't travel through this part of the country 
without driving through the Chandeleir Tree.

From this view it looked like it would be a very tight squeeze.
Should we flip the side mirrors in?

No problem!
Check out that trailor behind us.
They didn't attemp it. 
However, we did watch a suburban drive through.
That was a snug fit!

That night, we stayed at The Timber Cove Inn.
When we got to the Inn, it was so foggy
you could barely see the ocean.

While we were eating our dinner, the fog cleared and it was beautiful.

We had a very nice dinner. 
After we ate, we had a nice walk around the inn.
The property was beautiful, 
with walking trails and
fire pits with conversational seating.

It was the third night
 we got to sleep with the sound of the ocean outside our room.
You can't beat that!
