We have had a wonderful time visiting Eureka. I can tell you now, one week is not enough. There are too many great places to see. I am trying to catch up on all the places we visited and get them into the journal.

Today we visited the awesome town of Trinidad and Patricks Point State Park. The views were spectacular! We wanted to take a walk on Agate Beach and look for agates, but it was too far down. We visited the recreated Yurok village - "Sumeg" - consisting of traditional style family houses, a sweat house, changing houses, a redwood canoe, and a dance house. The village is used by the local Yuroks for education of their youth and to share their culture with the public.

Our next stop was Trinidad Bay and the Memorial Lighthouse. We saw two whales and tons of seals. Trinidad is a small town with a population of less than 300 people. I have added a ton of pictures to tell the rest of the story. More later from Eureka.
