Even during the middle of the day, it was easy to find beaches and coves that were empty. My husband and I spent one morning hiking up and down some rocky crags, sitting in a sheltered spot to watch the fog moving out, and climbing down to a beach that we had all to ourselves.
I’d clambered out onto some wet rocks when I looked down and noticed some bright colors in the tide pools. I saw a bright orange starfish, then some red ones, and some brilliant green sea anenomes. I called to my husband and we spent a happy couple of hours just wandering around, looking at the creatures that appeared every time the water receded.
