Memorial Day Road Trip (3)

 Wow! Our road trip didn't feel rushed or overwhelming at all until I looked at the pictures. We crammed a lot in to three days.  I still have another post after this one! 

Sunday started off with a morning hike. More like me following my family up and down small trails hoping to get down to the tide pools.  


Eric took this picture so Ally would like she was in the clouds. Those two are goofy! 




They climbed on monoliths and trees all weekend! 




Ally's favorite part about the beach! The Tidepools! 






So dramatic! Sticky sea anemones! 



After tide pooling for a bit, we headed out for a hike at a state park and then drove up to where there are about 200 or so seal lions.  







The rhododendron garden was beautiful! 


The lighthouse in this picture is being renovated but the house it belongs with is a bed and breakfast. Talk about awesome views! 


This little guy was inside the cave trying to make his way up on the rocks. 


There is an elevator that has been built so you can easily get down into the cave to view them. Whew! There is a lot of stink in a confined space! 






Outside the cave some distance away is another rock where they like to hang out. 


Check the big guy out at the top of the picture. He's sitting facing the ocean.  He was the biggest and no one was messing with him! 




However, these guys were not too happy with each other. Eventually the other sea lions made a circle around them as they argued! 




There were a few aggressive bites too. I know there is a ridiculous amount of pictures, but I just couldn't dwindle it down anymore. Rest assured, there will be more pictures.

What great memories to store away. My favorite is "Ally in the sky" and Jake in the sea anemones.

Love Omi

I'm with Ally ~ I love exploring tidal pools! So many vibrant colors and interesting shapes.
Amazing pictures. The coast out west is so different than our wide sandy Carolina beaches!
