We took off for the coast around noon on Friday. We were headed to Point Arena to stay at the Warfmaster's Inn. Some family friends gave us a free night stay as a wedding gift and we were so excited to be able to use it. Since Fort Bragg is only about an hour away from Point Arena we wanted to choose a weekend to use it when we knew Jake's grandma would be at her beach house so we could visit with her. We arrived in Point Arena around 2:30 and headed straight for the lighthouse. We'd researched it online and found out that they offer tours. Unfortunately it was closed when we arrived. It was also gated off so that you couldn't go all the way up to the lighthouse. We still look pictures though. Please excuse my weird face. It was very cold and windy.
After our trip down main street we set off on a drive and made it to the next town over, Gualala. We found a restaurant there and had dinner. We weren't totally impressed by the restaurant, but I loved how the butter was served (it's in an oyster shell).
