I have to say that the campground store was amazing! They had tons of fresh and organic foods and snacks, and very cool toys for the kids. These were some of the types of toys offered: Recycling green truck plus your typical beach toys, towels and clothes. We didn't try out the restaurant while we were there, but it sure smelled good.
Well, it was almost time to make dinner, but we all felt the need to stretch our legs, so we decided to go on a "short" walk. We set out to see the stables, but since there were no horses there, our oldest daughter asked to walk to the beach. We told her we could walk towards the beach, but probably wouldn't reach the water as it looked to be quite some distance. She was thrilled with that, and we set off.
|Only drawback to the hike was the need to cross Highway 1. We were just very careful and waited for a huge gap in traffic.|
|They had the best time exploring. And we loved watching them have so much fun!|
|I love these little ragamuffins!|
|We kept thinking the kids would get tired or hungry, or ask to be carried, or eat, but no....they just kept on running. They were determined to get to that beach!|
|And sure enough, they made it!|
|Those determined little guys made it from our campground all the way to the beach, and back again. |
I couldn't have been prouder of our little hikers.
And we were rewarded with the most amazing gem of a beach at the end of our hike. Just look at these views...
|Our fearless leader was so proud of her accomplishment. She was not giving up until we all made it to the water!|
The beach was gorgeous with windblown sand, tufty grasses and crashing waves. We found one outcropping of rocks with amazing tide pools in it. Since exploring tide pools is one of our favorite past times now, we all had so much fun looking at the little creatures.
|Petting sea anemones|
|The clarity of the pools was amazing. This was taken through several inches of water, and the sea creatures look crystal clear!|
|Since we had no changes of clothes, the little guy had to be saved from his own eagerness several times!|
|Beautiful sea star!|
|Four explorers soak in the gorgeous view before heading back. I soak in the view of the four people I love most, having a fantastic time. I love this picture. I love my sweet family. I miss vacation. sigh. Anyway...|
|The water reminded me of an oil painting. Waves so rough, they looked like thick layers of paint on canvas.|
|Who doesn't love a sandy, grassy, beach shot? Obviously not me, as I had about a million of these.|
