I think I was REALLY missing Jackson on this trip, he is in 95% of the photos I took this day! (You’ve been warned.) Sunday we awoke to SUN! Because we had hitch-hiked to Honeyman State Park, it was decided that Ben would drop us off back up the road to make up the missed miles. We chose Baker Beach as a great starting point, which would give us about 7 miles of all beach walking. Ben took the car (and the packs) to our next campground, Harbor Vista County Park, and begged a ride back to us from the Camp Host.
Waiting patiently. Soaking up the sun.
Can we go yet?
About half-way along, we reached Sutton Creek. Ben was the hero and agreed that it was better for only one of us to have to de-boot and get wet.
Jackson is getting anxious.
Ben had planned to go back for him last, but the next thing we know Jackson is swimming with all his tiny might across the stream to us. We had no idea he could swim!
I fell back with my own thoughts for awhile and was able to capture this sweet picture:
As we approached Heceta Beach, we no longer had deserted beach. A sunny Sunday brings out the crowds! At this point we headed inland and up a paved road for about a mile to our campground.
After dinner, Ben and Jackson headed home and Meg and I set up camp. There was a HUGE youth group taking over most of the campground, so it was loud long into the night.
