A couple of weeks ago we went to Pirates Cove. Yes. I know it is a nude beach but it is the most beautiful hike I've been on and we figured that winter was the time to go. (At least the guy in "khaki shorts" was laying on his tummy and Phillip was the only one that saw him.)
next hike I will be on the look out for wildflowers to identify. All I can remember from this hike was : poison oak, marsh grass (on the top of the hill, I only remember it because I was so surprised to see it there) and perennial mustard - which is everywhere this time of year.
