This will be our last post from Eureka. We will be leaving in the morning and heading toward Fort Bragg. We plan to do some boondocking at some of the Bureau of Land Management areas so we may not be posting again for some time. I am adding more pictures we took yesterday. We visited The Humboldt Bay National Wildlife Refuge and then took a tour of the Loleta Cheese Factory.
The Refuge was loaded with birds and tons of deer. I wish I had a camera that would zoom close enough to get good bird pictures. I saw a ton of birds with my binoculars but they were too far away to photograph. It was a perfect place to visit if you love birds like we do. It has miles of trails with both fresh water areas and salt water marsh areas.
The Loleta Cheese Factory was only a few miles down the road so we decided to check it out. We enjoyed tasting all the variety of cheeses before deciding which ones to purchase. They were delicious. We watched them making some Monterey Jack and then we visited their beautiful garden area in the back. It was an amazing garden with a picnic area and lots of places to just sit and enjoy. Don't miss this if you are in the area. More later from California.
