Spent an amazing day in nature with my husband and dog Aspen. Easy hike to the beach so much to see and enjoy. Rock hounding, shell collecting, surf watching. Just a day of simple pleasures.

The beach is open but the rest of the park is not. There are no bathrooms or seating areas. Still beautiful!

Yes most of the beach is covered in feet of sand, they have bulldozing to clean up but have a long way to go. There is a small area open now
