Welcome to the Seqouia's

After a few adventures along the way, we finally made it to Eureka, CA, the gateway to the Redwoods. These are a few pictures of our neighborhood park.

It's very strange to live in the midst of trees like this and see people bartering fresh eggs for fresh mussels and oysters at our farmers market.
Yesterday Dan went fishing off the pier with the local bait of choice, jumbo shrimp. I don't mind drowning worms, but shrimp?
Hadassah and Bobby think that this would be a good place for Papa to play with them. I agree.

Pretty sure that its just an optical illusion.... the Triestman's being so tiny-- those redwoods can't be THAT big! Kidding aside... what a beautiful, natural environment for the kiddos. Glad you went and tromped around the forest this weekend! Happy mamabear's day! Was wonderful to hear from you!!!

Me thinks Grandma would like to play there with them too!!! Papa said, "the ocean is impressive but give me those tree any day!" Wish we could hop on a plane and be there!

Hello, Triestman family!!!!! So funny to get your message, as I was just thinking of you and asking if anyone at work knew if you were back yet!!! Give me a call when you get home... we should meet up. Lila's favorite park is the one in Eveleth! I will email you our address...
