Visiting My Daughter-Day 4…Trinidad State Beach

Our daughter loves the beach (and why wouldn’t she…being the wonderful Coast Guard wife that she is), and therefore, our vacation had to include a visit to nearby Trinidad State Beach.

Trinidad is another great area to visit over and over again. There are a couple of beaches to play on, tide pools to explore, a pier, a good restaurant to eat at (which we did), and trails to hike.

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I did not know that my camera settings were askew (that mischievous little demon), so I am again apologizing for the not-so-sharp photos. I hope they are enough to inspire you anyway!

My family chose to hike the trail along the bluffs as well as play on the beach. The foliage is lush along the bluffs!

Riverside State Park

Riverside State Park is a two hour drive from where Hubby and I live.  Hubby and I visited the park last Sunday.  We will be back!

I don’t know why we haven’t spent more time there!  Maybe because I don’t get out much…working six days a week is a bit of a damper on travel time, but I ought to make more effort at getting out.  The park is a favorite hang-out of my oldest sister (right in her back yard). 

  • A quick shameless plug for my big sister…she has just published her second book…Mrs. Job’s Choice!  To learn about it, click to her website here.

Riverside State Park is full of outdoor fun…camping, hiking, rafting, horseback riding, outdoor photography and more!  So I grabbed my camera and had a great time practicing!

Two ways to photograph the same viewpoint (I need more practice with the second method):
