We reached a wonderful beach strewn with rocks of every size, some that sparkled and glistened in the sun. Sparkle and glisten always attracts me! And I like to bring home a rock from wherever I go for my garden. So, I picked up a small platter-shaped one - very pretty black with flecks of silver and gold. Molly then began to search for heart-shaped rocks. (She found a few smaller ones and then a lovely good sized one that we wrapped in the blanket and carried the rest of the way back. We called it "the baby"!)
We spent at least half an hour scrabbling around on the rocks, looking at the sea snails and small fish in the tidal pools!
Our walk took us through more marshland, past more rocky beaches and small ponds. We saw at least a dozen other people, but we meandered so it was quiet and peaceful.
At one point, a weasel ran swiftly in front of Ivy, causing her to scream and Sarita to collapse in laughter.
Another 2 plus km took us back to the car. We drove back home on the old highway, past beautiful beaches and pretty little villages. And, of course, no day trip can be complete without ice cream -- Chunky Monkey and Death by Chocolate got my vote!
