After the Giant Sequoias we drove to Eureka. I’ll admit I didn’t expect the SciFi (or should I say SyFy) show. I didn’t expect what I found either. Eureka is a decent sized coastal town in Northern California. I expected it to be about the same as all the other decent sized coastal towns I had been to in CA. What I got was a town that was more hick than any I had been to in a long time.
We went to the mall, which was actually a pretty nice mall. That made the next part even more shocking. I walked into a mullet convention. Seriously I saw like 10 mullets. I haven’t seen that many mullets in the past 2 or 3 years. It’s like the government setup a refuge for mullets in the town of Eureka and then covered it up with a SyFy show depicting the most advanced town in America.
Anyways, this is where I spent my 10th anniversary with my wife. We watched a movie together while my in-laws played with our kids and then we got a table to ourselves at Applebees. We are trying to save money for a trip down to GA at the resort we stayed at for our honeymoon this fall. Here’s hoping.
After dinner we drove to Orlean, CA which is located roughly in the 90s. More on that tomorrow.
