We headed to Mount Tamalplais state park for one more camping trip and discovered this gem of a campsite right by the sea.
Well, actually they were out of campsites and we were forced to stay in a cabin. Cassia clapped with glee when we told her.
The flowers were out in full bloom and I got busy with my camera. My love affair with California poppies continues.
More flowers that I haven't identified. Once again I searched every book store for a good plant guide and there doesn't seem to be one. Would someone please write a decent guide for California? I nominate Pojar and Mackinnon. Plant guides organized by flower colour drive me batty.
Sunshine, the ocean, flowers and a happy family. No wonder Cassia is suggesting we go on more vacations.
This kid is keen to climb.
A selection of tiny beach treasures.
I'm pretty sure these are a borage.I'd put this in a plant guide if I were writing one. Just sayin'.
California newt out after a rain storm.
