Brookings and the Redwoods

Last weekend we went to Medford and ended up there at 10am all done with our business and enjoying 65 degrees with sun. We decided to go for it and continue on to the coast, with stops in small towns and the redwoods on the way. We went to the resort town of Brookings on the California border to enjoy the tidal pools. Dommy and Paddy had a blast looking at the crabs, shells, and rocks, even though it got a little rainy on us. The local lighthouse was super cool, but we couldn't find a way out to it.

On the way back we stopped at Jebediah Smith State Park to see the redwoods. Although we've been to Muir Woods and seen some big trees, these were really impressive and since it was winter we had the whole place to ourselves.

And now for the coup de grace...a little liquid fertilizer makes the redwoods grow even bigger!
