For most of the week in Arcata we did not really know that there was a sun on this coast. But by Friday Sept 21, 2012, the sun had come out and it was warm and glorious. On Saturday I got permission to give Diva a bath and she looked sooooo good.
We were having dinner in Diva Saturday night and I could see the sun setting. There were just enough clouds to make the sunset perfect. We found out where a beach was, about 2 miles away, and drove to it. After 2 wrong turns and about 25 minutes we got to the beach just as all of the sunset worshipers were leaving! All gone. We noted the time and decided to come back early on Sunday and we did. No clouds this time so the sunset was not as spectacular but at least we were there.

|In spite of this nice warm picture it was quite cold and windy.|

She didn't quite understand why there was sand in her mouth but it didn't deter her.
