Eureka, California – Hello Mary-Lou

The forecasted rain catches up with us at our overnight place on top of the cliffs, and there is a heavy storm as well. We leave the lost coast on the morning, following Mattole Road. After shopping and laundry in Eureka, ready to leave, Doyle stops us. He invites us into a cafe and then to spend the night on his plot. Despite the pouring rain we have a barbecue. Doyle sings in a men’s a cappella choir Barbershop music. We may join the rehearsal and like the beautiful, demanding harmony singing, but only recognize the more modern “Hello Mary-Lou” from the 50s. Then we spend the rest of the night sitting and chatting with Doyle under his awning.
