After nearly a boatload of beer on our trip (I don’t like beer), it was now my time for utter indulgence. We saw this shop a few days before and it was closed. I was so happy to realize we’d pass it again on our journey south.
It was really delightful wandering through Scrappers Edge. My favorite local scrapbooking shop, Scrapbook Territory in Berkeley, recently closed. I didn’t have a shopping list but I was looking for new crafting goodies.
There was plenty to see.
Rem went and had a pint at Lost Coast Brewery while I shopped.
This is what I ended up purchasing:
Some reusable cardboard stencils, several ink sprays, a set of embossing powders in different colors and textures, including teal mica fragments and another jar of gold mica fragments, a pair of washi tapes, one with gold lace and the other with silver chevron design, a circular rubber stamp that has month and days to use in art journaling (and maybe on special occasion or birthday cards) and some Gelly Roll pens by Sakura.
I’ll do another post about playing with my new goodies, but it was a very satisfying shopping expedition!
We got on the road and continued southbound. I pointed out we’d be passing Ferndale, and that there was a good chance the pie shop, that had been closed on Sunday, would be open.
Rem needed no convincing.
Next stop: Vista Point.
And we had saved this stop for our drive south.
The corny but fun Confusion Hill was a good place to stretch our legs.
We got a vacation photo of ALL our critters.
Then a long drive and a transition from the Redwood Highway, to the Shoreline Highway; the start of Highway 1. After quite a bit of twisting and turning, we got out to the coast and made it to Ft. Bragg, home of North Coast Brewing Company, the final stop of the Brewery Tour.
Even after all the beer he’d tried, Rem still looked pleased when his flight of thirteen beers arrived at our table. This brought his grand total of beers tasted on this trip to (at least) 80!
We’ve visited here before and he enjoyed two of his favorite stouts: Old No. 38 and Old Rasputin.
Although the tour was nearly over, we still had a few more days of vacation to enjoy. We would leave Ft. Bragg the next morning and drive to Sea Ranch to spend 5 days with no more motels or long drives. My mom and Molly were joining us on Friday and Kathleen on Sunday and we will head home on Monday.
Thanks for coming along!
