The Lost Coast Beach Walk


Just back, now in Gualala. Exhausted. 25 miles of hiking in soft sand and boulder-hopping and high-tide dodging. It was the adventure of my life. On the 2nd day, wasn't sure I'd make it, but got a rest and pushed through for 8-1/2 hours yesterday. Utterly wild, raw, tough terrain. If something goes wrong out there, there's now way to get help. I'm so proud.
Had steak, 2 pints IPA at the just-opened brewery in Shelter Cove last night to celebrate, the Big Boy breakfast this morning in Trink's, my body restocking on depleted reserves; boy is it great to be ravenous and burning up whatever food is consumed.
Shot pics of lots of beach shacks.
Sea lions were unexpected maybe 75 of them snoozing on the sand near the abandoned Punta Gorda lighthouse, hardly mindful of humanoid in their midst.
Will write more soon…
