Before we proceeded to sightsee along the Highway 101, aka Redwoods Highway in this region, we decided to grab some lunch first, even though it was still early and not one was hungry. We thought that it's best to get some sandwich or anything that we can take on our sightseeing as we're not sure where we'll end up when hunger finds us.
We found this medium-sized grocery store online while researching for places to go for this trip. Good thing we remembered to go there after hiking the Manila dunes. It carries a great selection of general grocery items and their deli is stocked with delicious prepared food from your typical potato salad to samosas and other more exotic offerings. Aisle after aisle of interesting items to look at and maybe purchase.
Instead of a sandwich as we originally intended, the cheese bread was too yummy looking to ignore.
On the counter I noticed that tacked on the board were paper money from different countries. I even joked that they take all kinds of money, but they don't take American Express....they don't.
Onto the Redwoods Highway we went. No actual itinerary for this part of the day, except that all of us were keen on seeing as much as this region has to offer. Along Highway 101 are many parks, shorelines, forests. I couldn't count how many signs of parks we passed by. We drove up until we reached the entry to Fern Canyon. It started to rain. Our little Prius I thought couldn't handle the climb on dirt road. I know that Fern Canyon ends by the water, but we didn't attempt to go. We all agreed that should we return, we'd be driving an SUV, more power.
We stopped along the coast on a parking lot of a park to eat our packaged lunch.
