Today was filled with lots of adventure but the highlight was the amazing beaches we visited. After breaking camp our first stop was a beach just up the road a few miles to where the Klamath River meets the Pacific. Once again the dogs and humans had a great time walking, running, snapping photos and playing in the sand and surf. Our day continued with a drive along the coast and then into Patrick Point State Park where we set up a picnic lunch and saw Roosevelt Elk. This is subspecies of the elk we have in Colorado - Who knew?

We then headed to Crescent City and St. George Point. Again, a great drive along the coast which ended at very rugged and windswept point and beach. Upon reaching the beach after a short hike through some bluffs JoAnne exclaimed, "Look a sea lion"! And sure enough there was a large sea lion up on the beach. It didn't move as we approached. Hal through a stick at it…Still no movement. Why? - It was dead; apparently the victim of an Orca. It was still pretty exciting (doesn't take much to entertain us)!

Dinner was at a Marina Chart House which had a "seal pier" (live) and then back to camp. RM
