Julie decided that even though we hadn’t showered in four days,
A pedicure was needed.
And while we sat there, a crazy bird swooped down, landed on the table,
took two pecks of our butter, and then swooped off.
We headed over to Palmers Point again to go play in the tide pools.
They were really adventurous.
It was a triumph when they reached places that were difficult.
Some places they had to figure out how to get back down…
Then Julie decided it would be easier to balance without shoes.
Good thing she painted those toenails…
Just then, another seal popped up to say hello.
He did not look comfortable.
Josh and Julie wondered if it was possible to go around the point of the cliff.
Josh: We can do it if we grab right here and swing over. But I’m not sure we can come back…
Julie: Yeah, that’s so not happening…
So we went back to play on the rocks more…
And the shoes came off for both of them this time.
It was well worth it.
I saw barnacles for the first time ever.
After we left Patrick’s Point we went back to Humboldt County.
We camped in the Burlington Campground.
We also attended a campfire with the park ranger that night.
We learned about the bears in the area, and the poison oak by our tent.
Poison Oak does not sound fun at all… Yuck.
The next day we made it to Sacramento.
We saw David and met his girlfriend Cate.
And alas the trip ended and we came home.
They’re always too short, aren’t they?
Here’s to next time!
