They sure know how to do beaches around here!
Mile after mile, the road runs along the shoreline, sometimes pulling back far enough that people can build cliff-hanger homes. And the beaches are not always particularly inviting.
Actually, the beach above hosts one of the greatest collections of tidal pools at low tide that can be found for many miles around. It’s contained in a state park….much of the coastline hereabouts is safeguarded as part of a state or national park.
Access is often free, and quite easy. Just drive down a short sandy/gravel road and park in a sandy lot at the edge of the beach.
Or bring your horse and run along the w-i-d-e expanse of smooth sand at low tide!
Or gaze in wide wonder at the sand patterns left by a departing wave.
Whether sand dunes or rocky hillsides, the shoreline is always populated by clusters of pampas grasses.
The undulating coastline provides bays and beaches without end, some reached by steep hillside paths.
At the end of the day, there’s always a clear view of the sunset.
