Travelogue Redwoods and Oregon Coast

Some forums have a tradition of trip reports. This forum normally does not have an excess of inputs, so I thought I'd pass along info about my recent trip from SF to Portland for the purpose of seeing the Redwoods and the Oregon Coast. I am going to include our Northern California experiences, since many come to the forum seeking info about a similar itinerary.

Day 1: nothing too exciting. Drove from SFO to Fort Bragg with various stops along the way. Dinner at Silver's at the Wharf in Fort Bragg. Excellent crabcakes

Day 2: Stayed overnite at the Howard Creek Ranch Bed/Breakfast. Kinda quaint, so it gets mixed reviews. We really enjoyed it. It is located in a small valley that opens to the ocean. There is a little gray kitty that enjoyed walking to the ocean with us, both in the evening and in the morning.

We timed our departure so as to arrive at the Peg House restaurant on Hiway 101 in Leggett, CA, for lunch. Superb hamburger, salmon burger, and blackberry sundae! No inside seating, only an outside courtyard.

Spent the afternoon doing Redwoods: Avenue of the Giants; Big Tree Loop and Rockefeller Loop off of Bull Creek Flats Road. It's fun to drive "off the beaten path" and both loops were worth it.

We just returned from a trip to Portland, OR, and down the coast to Crescent City, CA. We stayed at an awesome hotel, Ocean View Inn, in Crescent City for two nights. The hotel is just a year old and very clean and quiet. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. In fact, without knowing it until we received a phone call from the hotel when we were in central Oregon, we had left an overnight bag in our room containing our daily meds. The manager graciously offered to take it to the post office and overnight it to our next destination. The hotel staff could have been any nicer or more helpful! Thank you Ocean View Inn staff!

Wow, what service! It would be great if you'd submit a review about your experience, golfergirl2013. This thread will eventually disappear but the reviews stay up forever.

Here is the motel:
