Last week

Last week we went to the beach. It's still crazy to me to see so much water. It's strange not to see land on the other side. The water is really cold (about 50 degrees), so you don't want to stay in it too long. I almost got knocked over by a sneaker wave and ended up waste deep. Funny how fast that can happen!

The beach has a long tunnel through the side of a cliff from one side of the beach to the other. One beach is sandy and very smooth. It was nice to lay a towel on. Once inside of the tunnel, it is very dark, rocky, and easy to twist an ankle. The other side of the beach is also rocky. It's odd because the two sides of the beach are only separated by a few feet of rock. There are large rocks to climb that are covered with barnacles. There are also strange sea animals that appear to be rocks, but are soft and contract when you touch them. It is like an alien landscape. It was fun to run through the shallow little sea caves in the cliffs that have miniature waterfalls running in front of them. To be so beautiful, the beach had very few people.

After we left the beach, we went to eat ice cream and drove the two hours home.
