Wildwood Days In Rio Dell
We got a late start this morning heading to Rio Dell about 20 miles south of our campsite. The event is the Wildwood Days, a small community get together. They had many restored old cars on display. We especially liked the old Volvo coupe. They also had a small vendor area and a barbecue . We passed on the barbecue but enjoyed everything else. There were also a few garage sales to examine.
We stopped at the Ell River Brewing restaurant for a late lunch. The food was really good. Dawn had a huge hamburger that was smothered with Lolita cheese, a local producer. She also had some beer battered onion rings. I had an open faced roast beef sandwich with mashed potatoes and fresh vegetables. Lou had an order of fries. Of course we shared everything but still had too much to eat. Everything was homemade, not from a freezer. We really enjoyed it. We tried the place a few years ago when we stayed at the River Walk RV Park next door.
We stopped by at the Eureka mall before heading home. It really has a lot of vacancies, which seems odd since it's what killed the downtown area earlier. The economy must be in worse shape then last year when we were here.
