Vacation 2009: The Beginning

And our vacation begins to take shape ...

Day One we will leave San Diego and drive 440.40 mile north to Morgan Hill, Ca. We'll be staying the night there so we can leave for San Francisco well rested.

Day Two: A bit of exploring around San Francisco. I still haven't decided if we will stop at the Aquarium of the Bay in San Francisco. I know Noah would love it but I am kind of "attractioned-out." There are so many attractions (Zoo, Sea World, Legoland, etc. in San Diego that I don't really feel the need to travel to see more! I would rather see more of the city.

Then it's across the Golden Gate and north to Eureka to see Tobin and his new school. I can't wait to poke around hippie-town Arcata. After all of the big city, So-Cal living I've done, I am ready for a bit of the Natural Folk. We are sure to get our fill of them this trip!

Wait until you see all of the fun little things there are to do in Arcata: a little zoo, the Natural History Museum at Humboldt State. Somehow if the whole group gets in for under $10 it's more worthy of a quick peek!

After Eureka? Well that is not quite ready yet ... stay tuned!
