We survived our night parked on the side of the road with about 3 other overnight RV’s. Perhaps they also had no reservations. We drove back to Mac Kerricher State Park first thing in the morning so we could enjoy a view of the foggy coast with our breakfast.
After breakfast, we went on a lovely little stroll along a wooden boardwalk. If you happen upon the same little stroll, we recommend keeping left at the fork, then you will end with the tide pools.
We walked down a flight of stairs to the beach and tide pools. We just happened to arrive at the perfect tide-level for tidepooling. On the way to the tide pools, I just had to photograph the beautiful shiny bulb seaweed on the gravely sand.
We were able to find several little animals in the tide pools. I didn’t get a photo of the crab or tiny fish, they were just too fast for me.
There is just nothing like natural outdoor education. Marine biology lesson ✅
Our spontaneous, unplanned weekend getaway was truly homeschooling at its finest.
We hope you are able to enjoy the great outdoors near you sometime soon. Perhaps you could even go on an unplanned overnight adventure! Thank you so much for following us or stopping by for a visit!
