Heather’s Birthday, Point Lobos
The beautiful Heather Burdon celebrated her birthday last week and her birthday wish was a trip to Point Lobos. It’s a State Park, near Carmel, about 1hr 40 mins South from where we are. We had never been that far South and were excited to explore.
At the start of the trail, we saw some sea Lions lying on the rocks down below.
We walked a little further along the coast and came to an area with interesting rock formations with rock pools that were great for climbing on and exploring.
We went a little further along the coast, looking for China Cove, a beautiful cove that we had seen images of online before we even moved to California. We found it and it was suitably breathtaking.
Sadly, China Cove is inaccessible, as restoration is taking place. It’s also fenced off because seals are on the beach and are birthing!
We walked around China Cove and came out on the other side to more breathtaking views.
Happily, just around the corner was Gibson Beach – and we were able to go down there and splash in the ocean for a while before heading home feeling more than content.
