the following set of photos were taken on our first trip to Short Sand Beach in which we arrived later than we hoped for, took way too long on the hike to the beach, exploring all things nature-y, and discovering the tide was too high for tide pools upon arrival, but we walked around the beautiful, misty beach for a few minutes before we got caught in a crazy rainstorm that chased us off the beach, laughing and running for cover. once we finally made it home we decided to call it a day and huddle up to a cozy fire built by Patrick and Osel. this little place is now my favorite little corner on this earth because both the first and second trip here were amazing in totally different ways and we had completely separate experiences each time. mother nature and the deep blue sea never cease to amaze me. and yes, that rhymed.
round two at Short Sand Beach... in which we were much luckier at finding better weather and a much lower tide. woot woot!
this last set of photos were taken at Canon Beach, Goonies never say die!
