Lunch time in Crescent City

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Coastal Redwoods

smiling sunToday was a wonderful day, at least weather wise, in Del Norte County.  It's days like today that we don't want to waste the sun.  We need to remind ourselves why living in such a rainy climate is so worth-it. 

I called my best pal and we decided to rendezvous for lunch.  We picked up some take-out and drove down to beach front park and parked in the parking lot that borders the little bay overlooking the harbor and the jetty. 

While we sat and ate our lunch, several people strolled by walking their dogs and soaking in the sunshine.  My friend, Susie, and I watched fishing boats come into the harbor from the ocean, pelicans and seagulls diving for their lunch and the waves rolling gently up on the shore in the protected jetty area; it was a peaceful, serene scene, and as Susie's lunch hour came to a close, I decided I wanted more.

One of the kudos of being a realtor is being able to pack-it-in and go home when you're not busy.   I left early today--I would have liked to been busy, however--and hurried home to continue enjoying the sunny day.  We live in Lake Earl Manor on the shore of Lake Earl wildlife refuge which has almost 300 species of birds, along with other wildlife.  The ocean is on the other side of a narrow spit of land, giving us a low ocean rumble most of the time.  Today I sat on my patio and listened to the many different birds that are stopping at Lake Earl for Spring.  It sounded like fine music to me and I was lulled off into a quasi sleep state that was restful and very relaxing.

Yes, we get rain; a lot of rain by most rainfall averages, but you've gotta pay to play.  What we have that makes the rain worth it is the pay-off of: nature--the color green is everywhere, the ocean, a spectacularly blue sky, no smog, no traffic, emerald colored rivers, fishing, surfing, and so much more.

Come visit us and you will see what I mean.

Hi Jeff,

Because I was in my friends car, I didn't have my camera.  I went back today and took pictures for the blog I'm going to do today and having lunch and experiencing the ocean in the middle of a major storm.  It's pouring today and I got a sunburn yesterday!  The next sunny day I will add the pictures to this entry.

Hi Fran. You are so right! Even when it rains here on the coast, it is still gorgeous and the colors are so beautiful. Living next to the ocean and enjoying all the natural beauty of this area, is so worth the rainy days. I can't wait to see the photos in your next blog. Have a great day.
