Last post I promised to take you to a place that I remembered as a child, Point Lobos State Park. I remembered the white sands of the beach, the windiness of the day, and the treacherous hike down to the beautiful beach.
I don’t remember there being all these stairs (left side of photo) descending to the beach, and quite possibly there weren’t many. I remember traversing down on switchbacks along the cliffs. It was terrifying as a child. It seems like the violence of storms has washed them out many times and passage to Sandy Cove is no longer a trip that any person can make.
This white egret has found the perfect spot to look for a good meal. Nothing should bother it while it patiently waits for lunch. They are extremely patient birds.
I have tried a few times to reach this destination in the past, but have been unsuccessful in finding it. I am so glad that a ranger offered us help in finding this teal blue and white memory of mine. I only had black and white photos and now I can see the beautiful colors of my memories. It is an amazing place. If ever in Carmel, it’s just a short drive.
