... also many birds here, lots of seagulls and royal spoonbills. The area was amazing, the ocean was so blue and the craggy rocks gave the coastline a bit of a gnarly edge to it. So a bit more interesting than your average beach. The next place we stopped was a huge long sandy beach, surrounded by grassy dunes. Here we were on the look out for sea lions and we found one!
