Anyone know what may have caused the circles on this rock?

Do you see the face in this rock? And how about this banana slug! He is a big one!

The park features a small recreated traditional Native American village maintained by the Yurok people. The village is called Sumeg Village and is in use today. One can see a redwood canoe, a sweat house, a dance house, and family houses.

If you enjoyed this little photo tour, then you might like to hop on over to my daughter’s website, where she shares more about Patrick’s Point, including watching her Coastie husband and crewmates hoisting. She is a much better photographer than I am!

Visiting My Daughter-Day Two…Patrick’s Point

While visiting our daughter, she took us to a fabulous park known as Patrick’s Point. I would go back again and again and again if I could! I found this to be a magical place!

Patrick’s Point is 30 miles north of Eureka, California. It is a lush, 640 acre park that takes you to the jungle and to the seaside. There is so much to explore! The park has spectacular views and six miles of trails.

Many of you know that I am taking a photography class.

Hubby and I took a drive to one of our favorite places, so that I could practice and catch up on homework.  We drove to nearby Douglas Falls Grange Park State Park.

My daughter, daughter-in-law, and niece are all beautiful girls interested in photography (and are becoming excellent photographers) and wanted to see what I was working on.

So this post is for them.

I was working on photographing water with different shutter speeds.  Here are the results:

I had the opportunity to take a trip to the coast to visit family and support my oldest grandson.

When did he get this big?

I am super proud of this graduate!  He had a drive-through ceremony…quite different from the normal tradition!

The family treated my Hubby and I to a day trip to Tolmie State Park, a marine area covering 154 acres on Nisqually Beach on Puget Sound.

This is a great day use park for picnicking, hiking, strolling along the beach, practicing one’s photography skills, crabbing, clamming, swimming, bird watching, etc.  I loved it here!

This little crab thinks he’s camouflaged!

This poor sea creature somehow lost its shell.

The creature was alive at the time that I took these photos.  Perhaps someone can tell me what it is, and if it can grow another shell?
