Otherworldly Beaches On A Perfect Day (#517)

The northern California coast never ceases to amaze me.  I have been coming here since 2007 and am still able to find new beaches.

Some day I should just write a book about all these beautiful otherworldly beaches.

I walked around a massive rock wall and found this beach.

I call these Parrot Beak Barnacles. Never saw them before today.

They were everywhere on this beach

Soon the beach narrowed to where I would have to wade waist deep thru the surf to get to another beach.  The sun was beating down.  I saw a cliff and thought to climb out to the path above.

Halfway up the cliff, I realized it was very unstable, crumbling beneath my feet.  I slowly retraced my steps down; feeling shaky over my error in judgement.  This is the surreal part: a raven sitting on top of the opposite cliff started making cooing sounds, as tho’ to soothe me as I struggled to safe footing.

Once back on stable ground I turned and said thank you.  The raven made a croaking sound once, then flew off down the beach.  ( I am overwhelming grateful, Raven)
