Then into Eureka and Arcata about 1430 or so..we stopped at the college on the way in, so we'd know where to be Monday morning. Then on to the Howard Johnson in Arcata. It appeared newly redone and the room was huge. We rested for about 1/2 hour and then decided to go see the ocean.
It's only about 15 minutes away and it was beautiful. Nice temp and no wind. This was the first day of daylight savings ending, so it got dark quite early. We enjoyed it anyway. Found our way back, the long way..thank goodness for smart phones and google maps telling us how to go. hahah..

Back to the room and ordered a pizza to be delivered, a little wine and a good night!
Monday we got up, got ready and headed downstairs for breakfast. It was really good, they had eggs, tater tots, sausage, cereals, waffles, bagels and other stuff. Loaded up the car and headed to the college.
The presentation started exactly at 0900 and at 1000 was the walking tour of the college. Very interesting and it sits in a beautiful place. Under 9000 students and a lot of what Adam thinks he wants. He wants to get into Natural Resources Engineering ..this could get him into National Parks and others as a Ranger..He has a few others he's interested in so we'll see. He is applying, and already has all the qualifications needed.

Tour was over at 1245 and we headed out. The college has a lot to offer..so we'll see..Had an awesome lunch at Trina's in Eureka and then on the road. A few short breaks here and there and a beautiful sunset over Clear Lake.
We pulled into Bryan's about 2015. Bryan had cooked enchiladas and coleslaw so of course I had to have one. Yum!!!
Few glasses of wine, conversation and off to bed!
Made Adam an egg sandwich this am and I left before he did. Was going to Winco, but decided to hold off till next week, stopped at Walmart in Gardnerville and then home. Ken was working on Adam's quad, it runs but still needs some work..but he'll get it going.
