Along the New Navy Base Road near West Humboldt.

We had decided to explore Eureka and discovered this area which is on a little strip of land separated from Eureka by the Arcata Bay.
The heavy fog had a brightness to it because the sun had not set. It was calm but yet spooky. You felt like you were in a horror movie where a ghost sailor would emerge from the fog and screams “BEWARE!”. However, the feeling is broken when a young family of four scooted by on their ATVs. The youngsters had on bright little helmuts and their colored flags were flying. Their laughter displayed the fun they were having. I wish I could have joined them.
This is my favourite picture of this adventure.
