Somewhere beyond the sea.

October 26, 2012

On a breezy afternoon, Miss Lauren and I left her family after hiking through Jacks Peak and headed to the sea. This was one of my favorite trips to the ocean, even though it was fairly short. We took so many photos, I collected stones and shells from the beach and we hopped from stone to stone finding treasure in each of the tidal pools.

One of my favorite parts of Monterey is the surrounding hills that surround the Bay. In this area, there was an abundance of succulents, scary cliffs that overlooked the waves crashing on the rocks and strikingly purple flowers.

Succulents as far as the eye can see.

Cliffs have always frightened me. Not being a fan of heights, I have to keep both feet firmly planted on the rock as I ease my way forward, but I finally leaned over the edge.

We found a secret staircase. We walked down it to discover some rotting seaweed.

Flowers abounded. I’m ready to head back right now.

    Nice pix, good job.
    In high school I had a friend named Cliff, he often invited me to drop over.

    This was such a beautiful day. I still wish I would have taken a ton of those pretty little rocks with me. I’m so glad you came with us on the Easter hike; otherwise I would have missed this wonderful second half of the day!
