I had a meeting with a new client today in Whitethorn, which is near Shelter Cove, and about 2 hours away from Ferndale. Since I hadn’t been down in that area yet, I decided to make a whole day of it and took the KLR since the client lived at the end of a dirt road. They have a florist and flower farm business so when I get the garden going, I’ll have a source for some seeds. After the meeting I went to Shelter Cove. I was expecting a small town filled with old houses but it is really more of a resort community. I think they have a law on the city books that says you must have a “For Sale” sign in front of your house at all times. I haven’t heard of any plans for a nuclear reactor being built there, so I really can’t explain the abundance of homes for sale. Without exagerating, I would estimate that 75% of the homes I saw were for sale. Doesn’t make the town seem very desirable.
After I left Shelter Cove I rode up King Range Road, which was a dirt road that takes you to Honeydew, which is on the Lost Coast loop. Once Derek learns how to ride a dirt bike, I’d like to show him this road. Then it turns back to pavement and I took that back to the Avenue of the Giants. Today’s picture was taken just before getting to Honeydew.
