Going to Eureka to visit our daughter Stacey and her husband Pat, always involves eating. It must be because all four of us love to cook and more importantly, eat. On Sunday we arrived in Fortuna at the Riverwalk RV Resort where we usually stay while visiting Eureka. We like this rv park because it is adjacent to the Eel River and we can walk the levy of the river in either direction and get great photos of the surrounding farms in their hillside setting. That very evening we went to Stacey and Pat's house for a great dinner of brats and coleslaw. Coming from Minnesota, brats are a big tradition in Pat's family and now they are a tradition in ours too.
On Tuesday Pat and Allan set off for Stone Lagoon to go kayaking. There are so many places to kayak around Eureka, but Allan had wanted to kayak Stone Lagoon for several years now and he finally got to do it. There were cormorants sitting around on branches and eagles gliding in the updrafts. While they were kayaking and Stacey was at a doctors appointment, I took the dogs and went out to plein air.
