BIGFOOT JAMBOREE IN HAPPY CAMP

WHEN YOU PASS SHASTA YOU KNOW HAPPY CAMP ISN’T FAR OFF. BRILLIANT AUGUST SKY! WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO THE BIGFOOT PARADE AND JAMBOREE AND THE GARRETT SIBLING REUNION!

THAT IS WHAT I LIKE. WE PULL INTO THE RANCH AND DINNER IS SERVED.

A JAUNT INTO TOWN TO VISIT BIGFOOT. NEXT, THE BIGFOOT PARADE AND JAMBOREE. THIS LITTLE TOWN IS HERE TO PARTICIPATE AND TO CHEER ON THE PARADERS. STARTED OFF THE MORNING ON THE PARADE ROUTE WITH BLOODY MARYS COURTESY OF MY SISTER KAREN.




A SIB REUNION NIGHT AT BROTHER CHRIS’S CABIN WITH THREE OF MY FOUR BROTHERS ENTERTAINING. ALWAYS A FAVORITE: DEAD SKUNK BY CHRIS, KIMBALL AND KIRBY. COUSIN JEFF KENNEDY JOINED US. THANKS TO CASEY AND GEORGE FOR ALL THEIR HOSPITALITY AT THEIR RANCH.

COUSIN JEFF

THE ADVENTURESOME MEN HAD AN ADVENTURE AT DILLON CREEK

I PREFERRED THE POOL

LEAVING HAPPY CAMP WE TOOK THE RIVER ROAD AND HIT A FEW CASINOS THEN ENDED IN TRINIDAD BUYING FISH AT KATY’S.

STOPPED AT THE SAMOA COOKHOUSE IN EUREKA. Samoa Island is a scenic 5-minute drive from town across the Samoa Bridge. Before the bridge was built in 1972, people traveled here by ferry.

A FAVORITE: LUNCH AT THE BENBOW. MMM BEET SALAD

IN UKIAH WE VISITED THE HISTORIC VICHY HOTSPRINGS, established in 1854. It is a unique 160-year old historic hot springs resort only two hours north of downtown San Francisco. Naturally warm and carbonated.

A LOVELY DRIVE THROUGH THE REDWOODS – AVENUE OF THE GIANTS – BIGFOOT FOLLOWED US

LOVED THE STEINBECK CENTER IN SALINAS AND HAD LUNCH AT HIS BOYHOOD QUEEN ANNE STYLE HOME

OUR LAST NIGHT A PEACEFUL STAY AT PISMO’S SPYGLASS INN. LOVELY ROOM AND RESTAURANT. GREAT WEATHER.
