Huge, 500 campsite park. Much to offer here. Great State Park beach, swimming, excellent bike paths, swimming pool in warm weather, golf, tennis and wonderful visitor center with program presentations. We saw an excellent program on native snakes (with live snakes) presented by the park's ranger.

... some sight-seeing for a few days. Then I fly back home via a short stopover in San Francisco again. I will be returning home on March 7. I am really excited about this trip. It is the chance of a lifetime, and I intend to make the most of it. I look forward to updating this blog and giving you photos and updates on the turtle expedition as well as my travels around Australia and New Zealand. Well, I must go do some more packing! ...
