Second, by the picture below, guess who's back. Even the motion sensor light didn't deter him last night or should I say this morning at 12:06 am. For those not familiar with my past confrontations with the Black Bear, that's who again, attempted to destroy my trash can. He finally took off when I turned on the outside spot light.

In the summer of 1857, First Lieutenant Horatio G. Gibson, then serving at the Presidio of San Francisco established a military post on the Mendocino Indian Reservation approximately one and one-half miles north of the Noyo river He named the camp for his former commanding officer Captain Braxton Bragg, who later became a General in the Army of the Confederacy. The official date of the establishment of the fort was June 11, 1857. Its purpose was to maintain order on the reservation.
We drove down to the Noyo River Harbor and ran into this young man from Chico, California who was on vacation too. He was making an attempt to catch crab (I'm assuming Dungeness Crab) with this hookup he has in his hand that is attached to a fishing rod. The basket like box in the center is where you put squid or octopus for bait and the rings are slip lines. The theory is that the crab comes in to eat the bait and you lift the rig catching the crab in the slip line.
Next stop was Point Cabrillo Light Station State Historic Park. A nice little 1/2 mile walk from the parking lot to the lighthouse and back. Of course there were those Asses that just drove out instead of parking and walking like the rest of us. Quite a few actually.

Our anniversary dinner was at the Little River Inn in the Wisteria Room that has an ocean view at all tables. I had lamb shanks and Katherine had smoked chicken.
Monday morning we packed up and jetted down the highway. We made it home in just a little over 6 hours taking the freeway most of the way instead of the scenic route.
Don't think I'll get back to fishing until next week, but I'll let you know when I do.
