You get to live near a town called Fort Dick. The city founders were just way ahead of their time.

Is that where F Troop was stationed?

Ha ha true. There's a beach in Santa Cruz, believe it or not, where people don't freak out about dogs off leash, too.

The sun actually came out this afternoon, and we headed to Point St. George. There were a bunch of people picking through the storm debris looking for treasures.

I really like the CC-Brookings area. Some don't. To each his own. There is such pretty coast line just a short drive both north and south of there. Hope you like it. Just don't pick up any hitchhikers outside Pelican Bay on your drives up to Brookings.

LOL, got it!

Well, if I could afford Santa Barbara, I might move there. But, CC's okay by me.

Welcome to Crescent City! When did you move here? My hubby and I got here the beginning of September 2014. I am so happy I >>>finally<<< got out of the Midwest...been trying for years! Summer heat and humidity + industrial pollution was killing me. Last winter, snow after snow after snow storm, police orders to stay off the roads, bone-chilling cold, I shivered all winter in my own house! Like you said, we can open the windows here in winter to get some fresh air, and it's FRESH! So many places to walk. I take pictures all the time. We are staying with relatives until we get our own place. There is some mold in this house, and lots of pets. It wasn't a problem until it started raining, but now he is miserable, maybe mold and pet allergies. I hope when we get our own place he will be better. It's weird, because I'm normally the one with the allergies, but I'm fine.

Not trying to be a wet blanket - but sometimes when you move to a new area it takes a season or two to develop allergies to the local stuff.

Surprised no one's mentioned how much rain CC (CA) gets, around 65 to 70 inches a year, even compared to Eureka's 40+ inches. And a lot colder too, seldom getting above 65 degrees. Cripes, even Seattle weather isn't that bad!

Well, if you want affordable + coastal in CA, there has to be a catch.
