From April to September of last year, my job took me to Crescent City, CA. My dilema? It took me 5-1/2 hours to drive from my front door in Vancouver, WA. to Crescent City. Hawaiian Airlines flies from Portland,OR to Kahului, Maui in the same amount of time... 5-1/2 hours. Tough choice...the job. it took only a short time to realize gold can still be found in Northern California. 5-1/2 hours to Crescent City? Del Norte! What a great destination!

Pictures of the harbor were taken during a quieter, more tranquil time...prior to the 2011 tsunami. Thoughts and prayers to those in Crescent City who were directly and indirectly affected by the tsunami.
