It is not as tight as it looks. I thought the coach next to us had a very similar paint scheme and decided to include it with the Roadrunner.
During our stay we have taken a number of day trips and seen the Redwoods and some local sights including the Battery Point Lighthouse. The cloudy, overcast skies opened up in the evening and we decided to go down to the city park and out to the lighthouse.
One interesting point of the Crescent City area. It is susceptible to tsunamis. The two most recent and noteworthy events was the Alaskan Earthquake of 1964. The earthquake (most massive ever in the northern hemisphere) caused extensive flooding in the town and most was destroyed. But the lighthouse stood.
More recently, the March 11, 2011 earthquake off Sendai, Japan caused a destructive tsunami in Crescent City. Again, docks and boats were destroyed and huge waves flooded the city. According to researchers at Humbolt State University and the University of California, the city experienced tsunami conditions 31 times between 1933 and 2008.
So the lighthouse has been an important icon on the coast over the years. It rests atop the islet and is quite picturesque.
Thanks for joining us on the Roadrunner Chronicles. And thanks so much for those comments! It is always nice to hear from you! Until next time...
