The first day we were there a thick fog rolled in in the afternoon and stuck around the rest of the day. We took a long hike over some huge dunes down to the beach. Because of the thick fog it was like it was just ours. There was also walking areas through woods that had really cool trees! I'm not sure what type they are but they shed their layers of bark the reveal different colors. Very pretty!! EDIT: They are eucalyptus trees, thanks to Susan!
the second day was clear & sunny but we had to get back to LA.
We stopped in Port San Louis so Andrew could buy HUGE clams for $10/dozen. There were tons of Sea Lions! And birds diving into the ocean for fish.
