Half a Cup of Blues

Cooling Down in Trinidad...

Here we are at the Ocean Grove Lodge in Trinidad, California.

It was supposed to be 113 degrees back home so we came to the coast for a COOL weekend getaway. It's only around 65 degrees here!

We checked in early and then drove over to Patrick's Point and walked down to Agate Beach.

This is the view from the lookout at the top of the bluff.

And this is the view from down below at the beach level. You should thank me now for NOT taking pictures of the very large and very dead sea lion on the beach. Down at this end of the beach is where we found the largest pieces of agate that day.

The Goobers were not very interested in hunting for rocks or shells so they occupied themselves with the waves and each other. There were having a BLAST!

Soon afterwards the other big boy, yes that would be Yibbyl, joined them in the surf and they played hard for quite a while. Now when I say that they had a blast, I mean it literally. They were sandblasted and saltblasted until they were raw!

When it was time to head back we looked up and saw that the mist was rolling in and that it sure was a good ways back UP that darned trail!

We finally made it to the top and had to take just one more shot of the sea before we left.

Here are some of the treasures that we found on the beach.

And here is the wildflower picture of the day! I don't know what it is yet but I'll check the book and get back to y'all.

All in all Saturday was a great day.

Sunday will have pictures, too. It will include whatever we find on the Avenue of the Giants! Oh, we got to listen to K-HUM on the car radio and it is so similar to RadioParadise that it felt like we had it on the road with us. How sweet is that?
