Day 4, Oregon State Parks

 Cape Arago State Park

Tide pools

 Look at these rocks with all these crazy things going on!

The bridge that we think looks like the troll's bridge in Three Billy Goats Gruff

Shore Acres State Park 

Look at those HUGE leaves!

Sunset Bay State Park

After a fun day we are back to camp and all tucked in.  We had a great time visiting some of the beautiful state parks along the southern coast.  We started at Cape Arago and had a picnic lunch before walking down to the water.  We could hear the sea lions barking from the picnic area!  We hiked down to the shore and enjoyed looking at the tide pool shore.  We saw sea anemones, crabs, hermit crabs, and snails.  There were some amazing rock formations that I don’t understand what was happening.  I need to find a book about it!  Next was Shore Acres State Park.  This area was beautiful with a hiking trail along the cliff edge and a huge garden area.  The dahlias aren’t blooming yet but everything else was amazing.  Next was Sunset Bay State Park.  We let the kids play on the sandy beach for quite a while it was interesting to see the land change as the tide came in.  There was a small sandy island just off the shore when we got there, but by the time we left you couldn’t tell where it was anymore.  After the beach we stopped for souvenirs and a fish dinner.  We ate at the High Tide Café, and it was delicious.
Tomorrow we are scheduled to go to the aquarium, Otter Crest and Agate Beach.  I think it will be a lot of fun.  We have a few more days at this camp and I can’t wait to hang out a bit and swim and relax.
