A new record of finds in one day -- 47 with only 2 DNF's
We started out near Oceanside Harbor and ultimately walked out to the end of the jetty again. My photos aren't as good as the one Duncan! got and which I used here last year, but I tried.
This little crab was waiting for the tide to come back in so it could enjoy mealtime again.
Although it was a beautiful day, I didn't take too many pictures. That was until just after sunset, when these wonderful little clouds were illuminated by the sun below the horizon.
It was a really fun day, marred only by the hard fall I took while trying to get to the beach on a steep little trail down the cliffs. Jahoadi overcame her fear of blood to put bandaids over the "road rash" I got when I fell on a large rock I expected to be part of the sandy cliff. Even the neoprene cover on my GPSr was damaged when it hit the rock.
At the time I fell, I was being very careful and cautious. It happened so fast, I hit the ground before I even knew my feet were slipping . . .
Something like that sure makes you think about what can happen . . . and since I am heading out on a road trip by myself in a couple of days, I'll have to be even more cautious when heading out on the trails solo.
