The drive to Pt. Arena is about 3 hours. Usually takes me about 4. This time, leaving in the afternoon, instead of (as usual) early morning, it took me 8 hours to get to Louie's. Did I have fun! I must have stopped, usually to shoot photos, 50 times…I'm thinking of changing the nature of this blog once we get THESHELTERBLOG up and running, maybe tie it in with Instagram, a photo+ caption a day.

A pristine white (dirty white color -- the best -- sand beach, mountains of driftwood.
