Kiama's Charm - no.3

After staying the night at a  Koa campsite in Crescent City we had a little diversion through the beautiful Redwood National Park, where we visited the Trees of Mystery.

Highlights were the Skytrail which took us over the canopy of the giant pine trees and the Museum which housed an enormous private collection of Native American Art with lots of textiles to my delight, which I will post about in another blog.

We then carried on driving south on Highway 101 and stopped at McKinleyville viewpoint, just before exit 721 where I hung charm no. 3 on a fence. Unfortunately I couldn't make any photo's, as there were several people sitting in their parked cars and I didn't want them to see that I was leaving something on the wire fence. However, thanks to Google I could find a street view of the location, so you can have a look by clicking on the link here.

I chose this spot because the Pacific Ocean and the beach looked so inviting and although we didn't have time to walk all the way around the fence to go to the beach we could imagine Kiama running, in knickers and bra, for a quick plunge in the sea. She loved to swim in the sea, whatever the season, whatever the temperature.

Here she is in Winter - January 2011 in the sea in Guernsey
