Hi Faye
Mendocino is about 150 miles from Eureka I can not help you there. In my area for artists, studios/galleries, Ferndale is the best. Old town Eureka too. Up here behind the redwood curtian we are a bit different but I do not know anyone who avoid tourists except when they drive the wrong way on the one way streets. Lost Coast Brew is a good place to see meet locals, also Six rivers brew in Old Town.
Long beach with dunes and dogs? From South to North... Samoa Beach, Mad River Beach, Clam Beach, Big Lagoon. Take your pick they are all nice, fees charged at Clam and Big Lagoon. Trinidad and Patricks Point are State Parks dogs must be on leash, the ones I mention dogs can run free. Nature Preserves My favorite is..... Well my wife would kill me if I posted it on the internet. If I had only a couple of hours I would stop at the Founders grove in Humboldt Redwoods State Park.
and take the nature trail. Then drive up bull creek to the big tree area. This area is called Rockefeller Forest. Check out http://www.humboldtredwoods.org/
Where do I go for seafood? To my buddy who is a fisherman to see what he caught and then take it home to the best cook in the world. If your up here after Thanksgiving check out the Eureka Inn at night they are the Hub for X-mas time.

Hi GP, yes we will arrive Nov. 26 and stay around the area for a few days.
I am really looking forward to seeing your town again, and exploring the redwoods and the coast.
Maybe stay in Miranda one night too. If I remember the name of the place with cabins on both side of the road.
Thanks for your suggestions, I have printed this thread. I like your idea of "behind the redwood curtain".
