When you live somewhere you get use to your surroundings. You move there, get settled and find your niche. You begin to get into a routine and you start to do the same things over and over and over again. I moved to Eureka 8 years ago, found my groove and stopped searching for new things to do. I would drive south 200 miles to Santa Rosa numerous times a year, but had yet to stop at the Avenue of the Giants in the Humboldt Redwoods, which was a mere 30 miles south of Eureka. I was always in a hurry to get to Santa Rosa or to get home. This time we decided to stop and play tourist and I am so glad we did. We are on this journey, this adventure, not just to get to the destination but to enjoy the road there. I strive each day to implement that into our lives, this particular day I succeeded.
