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 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!

More Vacation – Dungeness Wildlife Recreation Area and Refuge

I am back to the day job, but behind in posting vacation pictures. 

How would you like to take a late afternoon stroll here?

It is a long way down!

A beautiful sunset in a magical place!

When the kids were young, we enjoyed camping at Dungeness Wildlife Recreation Area and Refuge.  This evening, we simply enjoyed our stroll, but in the past, we have taken the time to hike, look for crabs and other beach treasures, and walk out to the lighthouse on the spit. 

There is much here to fall in love with!

Owen Beach

While there is enough at Owen Beach to explore, and keep one happy all day, we chose to take an early promenade along the beach.

It was calm, and very pleasant; a great morning!

This little fella was also taking his morning walk.  I love his coloring!  I moved him off to the side so that he wouldn’t be trampled by an unobservant walker.

It was fun to see this plant growing from an old piling out in the water.

Aren’t jellyfish one of the most fascinating of God’s creations?  Yes, this one is alive and well.
