November 4th - I want to ride my Bicycle. Eureka slough

What makes a great sunset or sunrise?  Clouds, of course.  There has to be some kind of moisture in the air to refract the sunlight.  Of course.  Up here in Humbolt County, we have lots of moisture.  Not just clouds, but the onshore drift and fog that comes every night and begins every day. 

November 4th, we were tired of sitting around because her work schedule doesn't provide a lot of sequential days off.  We drug out the bicycles and headed down the trail that surrounds Eureka.  We didn't go that far, but a lot further than I did last time.  Out in the bay, were a group of sea lions in the distance.  We discovered Sacco Ampitheater. A structure built for the resident's use. 

The day was overcast and cool enough to make for a good bike ride.

I'm not sure if this used to be a bridge, or pier.


  1. Nice day for a ride. Hey I see a Harley shop in the background, did you get your friend (me) a t-shirt? 😂😂😂

  2. Are you willing to reemburse me for it? What size?
