July8 – To the Pacific Ocean

Standard

I 20 is perhaps the curviest road EVER – and breathtakingly beautiful. We drove from Cloverdale this afternoon. What a different climate here!  It was 64 and cloudy when we arrived. The sea breeze was refreshing, and the horns and bells from the harbor are eerie and enchanting. Deer are everywhere, as are seagulls and crows. I also saw a GIGANTIC jack rabbit, a heron, and wild turkeys. It is rather odd for this Galveston girl to see beach houses NOT on stilts, though. 

Fort Bragg is known for sea glass, which is apparently abundant on the beaches. For 60 years, the residents of this area used the beaches as trash dumps.  All that remains are broken bits of glass, ravaged by the sea.
