Day two at the beach condo started with a little rain. We expected that. But the rain didn’t seem serious about anything, until we were about to head out the door for a short walk… when it started to hail. Sadness.
Just north of Devil’s Punch Bowl is a “marine garden.” It is a nice collection of tide pools and pretty marine plants. If it weren’t so cold it would have been fun to wade through. As it was, I kept my shoes on and Dana did a little exploring in the water.
From the marine garden you can get into Devil’s Punch Bowl. This is a panoramic picture Dana took of the inside of the bowl. It has lots of pretty colors (and three entrances) and is only accessible at low tide.
This is what the path to the entrance looks like.
The cliffs are all very neat and have little features and small caves.
Dana tried to find a sea urchin, but we couldn’t find any. . Eventually we found a few starfishes. This one was a go-getter.
And even though this looks like it was taken the day before, the sun did come out for a few minutes as we finished our exploration.
As we drove out of town we stopped at Seal Rocks. Dana climbed up them with ease and down them with difficulty, but he made it in one piece, for which I am grateful.
Thanks, Dad and Terry for inviting us and giving us yummy food at the beach!
