Great way to end an otherwise 'problem riddled' day, especially when I had a wee touch of Fireball before a dozen pain pills as I fell into bed.
Next day my ribs were KILLING ...
... to get to the beach. We made it just in time. It was a little hazy that night, but it was beautiful.
After we watched the sun set, and it started to get cooler we headed back to our campsite to finish our wine and chocolates.
In the morning we packed up camp, and took one last walk on the beach. It was windy but still warm from the sun. After our walk we got back in the car and headed south on highway 101. ...
