The kids are like little puppies when you let them out of the car they just run in circles like they have been trapped.
The rock formations were interesting. Some rough and some smooth. This one was a perfect stair step for the kids to climb and a smooth slide for them to go down.
The kids had fun running in the shallow drainage water. We assumed it was warm water since it was shallow and since the kids didn't mind getting soaked but it was freezing. At least the same temp as the ocean water.
The kids were playing in the shallow water just to the right of Joel in this picture. It was a nice chance for us to chill.
We found some tide pools that had a lot of interesting marine life. Joel is feeding a sea anemone a muscle he broke open.
We took a different path back to our car. The kids stopped to watch this big swan in a pond. The swan actually quickly swam to the side and started walking towards the kids. It was viscous and huge. I think it could have eaten Ethan for lunch. It was as big as he was. We obviously kept moving. We are used to feeding the geese in NE and CO so the kids were interested and not afraid when he came out of the water...and then he stretched his neck and opened his wings and he was HUGE. The biggest one I have ever seen - I bet he was at least 50 pounds.
