    Day we saw the Grey Whales

    Favorite thing: I know, I know. Maybe you've already driven through here on the 101, and didn't see much of anything. Turn around and come back! The complexion of this area is vast and ever-changing. Grey one afternoon, sparkling and bright just a moment later! I was lucky enough to have a few locals show me the beauty spots...and they're incomparable. Hidden Beach, 15 mi. south of Crescent City, is a "Hobbit trail" by the sea. Endert's Beach, 1 mi. south of town, is that rare combination of sandy shoreline and green, jutting Redwood-strewn mountains rising out of nowhere... Kellogg's beach goes on forever, with nary another soul in sight. For nature-lovers everywhere...

    Fondest memory: We were out beach-combing on Endert's beach last April, and saw Grey Whales playing just beyond the breakers...at the same time, a seal was following along in the waves, watching ME. We were all having a great time being fascinated with each other. It was one of those moments when you swear time will never end, and go on, glowing and perpetual.

    Favorite thing: Another great view of the Battery Point lighthouse! The tide was out on this visit...so we got some good shots!
    One should note that this is an active lighthouse and a family lives in and maintains the operations! So visit only at posted times!

    Favorite thing: You must go to the beach of course...and you must attempt to reach this light house! When the tide goes up you can no longer reach it! So check the tide charts! But the beach around this area is great for treasure hunting! I found tons of sea glass here!

    Fondest memory: We were determined to reach it on one visit...and were given piggy-back rides across the two feet deep water! When we got over...finally...it was close to visitors for the day!! Oh well!!
