The third day of travels started out in Florence, Oregon and brought us down to Crescent City for the night. Florence is famous for its beautiful sand dunes along the coast. I’ve been here once before but it was years ago when I was much younger. Back then, we rented some one seater dune buggies and I got stuck….a lot. This time, we rented individual ATVs for each of us and I still got stuck….a lot. The sand dunes were beautiful though and being stuck meant I had a lot of time to just sit and take in my surroundings while I waited for help. After the excursion, I had to empty myself of all the sand that had collected in my clothing.
We were all starving after we were done with sand dunes and decided to get lunch at Traveler’s Cove and it was delicious. The portions were just big enough to fill up the appetite we had worked up. If you’re in Florence and in need of a yummy, hearty meal, I would definitely suggest visiting Traveler’s Cove!
The next leg of the trip was just to get to Crescent City for the night and take it easy. We were all pretty tired and just wanted to hang out in the hotel to relax for the next day which took us through the Redwoods and then to our destination of Sonoma for our conference.
