Vacation: Part 4: Breakfast in Arcata: 02/22/07
Over this 3-day weekend we took our first vacation as a family of four. I've been posting photo montages of each place we stopped on my livejournal site but I plan to post a more in depth description of what we did here, one stop per day.
Sunday morning we woke at a quarter to seven to the sound of Harriet giggling and raining splattering against our hotel room window. Once I had the light on to change Harriet's diaper, Sean was up too. As we were all up and ready to go by about seven-thirty we decided to hit the road and get breakfast en route to Oregon rather than try for breakfast either at the hotel or somewhere in downtown Eureka.
We drove a few miles in the rain to Arcata where we pulled off for gas. Sean and I looked for pastries in the mini-mart but we didn't find anything except a milk chug for Sean.
We hopped in the car and drove into down town Arcata. We found a local grocery store that also had a bakery. We parked just as the rain was letting up and got breakfast. I had a blue berry cheese danish, Ian had an orange scone and Sean had a croissant. We ate in our car with a west facing view of a gorgeous rainbow (one of many we saw that morning). It was the perfect start of our day!
