We decided that Friday was Beach day and had already spotted a location to spend the day.  We spent about three hours on the beach enjoying the waves and walking the shores.  There were some cool cliffs and caves that we explored along with a small stream that emptied into the pacific.  It was warm in the sun but with the cool breeze we actually had our sweatshirts on as we relaxed in the sand. 

We initially hoped to walk on the Pudding Creek Trestle but Syd was quite tired so we decided to go back to the hotel that afternoon.  I included pictures of the Trestle although just from below.

After a little relaxation, Austin and I went to a small local mini golf course and played 18 holes.  It was a different type of course then we had ever played but it was fun anyways.  As we played we heard loud rumblings but we first thought it was from a local logging company.  It wasn't too long before we started to see the thunder and lightning approach the coast.  As we approached the 18th hole it started to hail pretty hard.  We played through and had a blast in the hail.  Little did we know that this series of lightning strikes would start over 2000 fires all over Northern California and leave smoke around Lincoln for weeks.  Austin and I stopped on the way back to the hotel for dinner and watched the lightning as the sun disappeared over the horizon.
