Redwood Highway: Ferndale Pizza Co

After a day of frolicking down the Avenue of Giants (can one frolic through redwood forests?), we rolled into Ferndale and checked into the cutest little cottage for the night.

Ferndale is about as quaint and cute as a small town can get.  Just about everything can be found on this one main street, including most of the restaurants.  We walked up and down the street (didn't take that long) before we finally settled on Ferndale Pizza Co for dinner:


Our other two options included a fancy restaurant that was a bit too pricey for our tastes and a steakhouse that had a long wait.  Ferndale Pizza Co was perfect because we were tired and hungry and in no mood for waiting:


The six of us ended up splitting a pizza and an entree.  The entree came with bread and butter:


I think I was the only person who dug into the bread.  But that's probably because I hogged the bread basket.

For our large pizza, we wanted half hot cowgirl (Canadian bacon, salami, pepperoni, mushrooms, olives, and jalapenos) and half wildcat (pepperoni, sausage, meatball, and salami):


No herbivores in our party.

The pizza was cheesy and the crust bread-y.  Not exactly memorable, but it did the job that night.

I forgot who wanted the eggplant parmigiana, but the rest of us were all on board.  Especially when we heard that we could order the lasagna as a side (it was either that or spaghetti or ravioli:


Basically all you can taste is the marinara sauce, which was fine by me.  I could happily dip bread in marinara sauce all day.

By the time we walked back to our cottage, we were stuffed and exhausted.  But that didn't stop us from whipping out Taboo and playing a couple rounds.

Gotta make every waking hour count when you're on vacation!
