December Exploring on the California Coast
We were able to stop the car at Pigeon Point Lighthouse, jump out and run down to the beach quick enough to get this rainbow before it disappeared.
After breakfast at Gazos Grill, (a great place for Sunday breakfast on Hwy 1, just past the Lighthouse) we headed back north hoping to be able to outrun the rain for a quick beach walk.
Cowell Ranch State Beach countless times, but never stopped. On Sunday, we stopped.
It's an extremely peaceful (easy) half mile walk down a gravel path to get to the beach. Bird watching - hawks play in the wind. Half way down the path, you will come across the "Whale Gate" -a lovely rusty reminder that Cowell Ranch is still a working farm, and has been for many generations.
I think I can tackle Monday.
