[travel] Road Trip, June 2012 / Day 2

Continue from Day 1...

Day 2 Itinerary - 09:30am Breakfast at Mama's 03:00pm Avenue of the Giants 10:00pm Jacksonville, OR.

After a good night sleep at Omni Hotel, Miss V and I started the morning at Mama's with Erin for breakfast.  I always wanted to go to Mama's, but the line would scare me off.  Happy that Erin braved the line with us (thanks, Erin!).  I ordered the Pan Dore, which is slices of Sour French Baguette with Sauteed Apples in Lemon Butter Sauce.  mmm... It was really good!

Around 11am, we made a quick stop at Hamilton, CA. for gas and picked up some pastries for the road at La Boulange Bakery before headed to Avenue of the Giants.  The drive was about 4+ hours, in between we made a stop at The Peg House Grill in Leggett, CA. for lunch.  By the time we arrived to Avenue of the Giants it was already 3pm.  Originally, we didn't plan to stay long, but the magic of nature and being surrounded by the "giants" had us wandered longer than expected and dropped the plan to visit a small town, Ferndale.

When we arrived to Jacksonville it was 10pm and we were dead tired.  Thankfully, TouVelle House, which was provided by Hotels.com, took good care of us and we were able to go straight to bed for some much needed rest.

More tomorrow!
