Word, word. I don't live in Humboldt anymore, but I was up there for almost a decade puttin' in work. I'm sure there is a lot more warm weather and sun off the coast at least. That fog bank and never knowing what time of the day (or year for that matter) it is really started getting to me after a while. Basically only like a half dozen or so days per year where the temps raised above 70 degrees it seemed.
Yeah, there's days here when it's like 107 that I'd take that 70 degrees in a heartbeat. On the other hand, I wouldn't want to be out night fishin' on a day that doesn't even hit 80. But yeah man.. Foggy mornings and hoodies in July? Jeeze, throw in some abalone steaks and chanterelles and I'm sold cold
Chantrelles mushrooms though? Oh man, there was some restaurant in Arcata or Trinidad that had a ****ing killer creamy pasta dish with chantrelle mushrooms that I would slap someone to eat right now.
Nice!! Wouldn't mind knowing where that was. It's been a few years since I have been out that way. Usually just end up going into Mendo or F Bragg.
Used to spend a ton of time out there. Getting meadowfoam honey at the Arcata farmers market, going for oyster shooters the Grotto in Eureka, Smokin' Moses oyster sauce from Trinidad, that killer little German restaurant in Orick, California rolls from the japanese place in Arcata Square, the Thunderbird inn, Christies milkshakes, Humboldt U, 53 degrees in the middle of summer. Not too many places on earth like that. Good times
The cool summer is definitely ideal for working from home....
Also, I've been surprised at how well the sushi spots in Arcata have held up to the ones I've come across in the Bay Area. Never had a taste for sushi when I first lived in the Bay, and always figured that sushi made by a bunch of white folk in Humboldt would be garbage compared to the likely more authentic spots around where I live now.
Yeah, when you finally conquer that "raw fish" thing, it's tough to beat good sushi. I could live on it 4 or 5 days a week easy. Just couldn't afford it
