In continuing with our beach theme this week we stopped at El Capitan beach for two nights because we'd read that they had good tide pools. Well, I might have to disagree there... I grew up going to the tide pools at Cannon Beach in Oregon and those are filled with all kinds of life. These ones in El Capitan seemed a bit tame by comparison, but we still enjoyed our visit primarily because we saw whales and dolphins! Unfortunately I wasn't fast enough with my camera to capture them. The RV "resort" we stayed at was really nice - probably the fanciest one we've stayed at on this trip - and had a nice hiking trail loop in the hills above it, so Jeff was thrilled. I took advantage of the full hookups (water, electricity, sewer) to give Audrey a thorough cleaning. She was a dirty girl! We knew we were headed off grid for our next stop where we have to conserve water, so it was now or never!
