October 8 and 9
We spent two nights at Riverwalk RV Park in Fortuna, California. It was a short walk across a road to the Eel River, which empties into the Pacific Ocean just nine miles to the west.
Most of our local exploring, however, was done in the nearby smaller town of Ferndale. The the entire town is registered as a California historical landmark with dozens of well preserved Victorian-style homes and business. It's also the site of what we read is the only cattle cemetery in the US. We had to see that.
