Oregon Trip – Day 3 – Crescent City, California

After Crater Lake, we then made our way south. It looked something like this

The first stop on that trip was Crescent City, California, home of rocky shores and lighthouses.

Oh, and sea birds.

On the day we were there the weather was chilly and the seafowl were hungry.

Something about these rocky beaches set against the liquid movement of the sea just makes one stop and take a deep and satisfied breath.

At the end of the breakwater, we found these strange concrete… somethings… that I’m still not sure of the purpose for.

Hours later we moved to a softer spot on the beach.

Mucking about in the tide pools, life teems.

In the evening, we viewed the area from the opposite vantage point.

And we watched the sun set on a chilly ocean.

    The concrete structures at the end of the breakwater are dolos. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dolos
    Purpose is to dissipate the wave energy, protecting the concrete jetty.

  9. Unusual, but great angle on that seafowl!

  10. Looks like an anemone? Pelican diving upside down — pretty amazing! I hope youtube videos are not admissible in traffic court! :)
