I had no plans to visit Trinidad Bay. But for some reason after heading north after Arcata I saw a sign and ended up at the beach at Trinidad. This is a small beach community that was host to a hiking trail on a bluff. When I saw that I knew what I had to do. The trail is about a mile long which gives one breathtaking views of the California surf. Fabulous is all I can say. After I got done with the trail I stopped off and bought $20 of smoked salmon at the smoked fish store. The lady there admonished me for eating so much low-grade canned tunafish which is, according to her, way too high in mercury. I promised her I would discontinue the tuna addiction, but it is so good. Pics of Trinidad Bay.
