The hike itself was about 45 minutes one way. We got to the rocky beach and Anders and I went first. We had to take our shoes off because it was right on the shore that we were climbing rocks and would have gotten our sneakers wet. Next time, we will bring hiking sandals. Anyway, we got to the pools and it was pretty amazing. I didn't bring my camera as I thought it would get wet. The water was very warm in the tide pool. We saw Nancy from Good Hope there...it was fun to see a friendly and familiar face. There were lots of people there which is atypical according to a man I met who was visiting from DC.
Anders and I hiked back and Brad then went to see the pool and do a little swimming. He had his turn and we headed back. The hike back seemed a lot shorter, probably because we knew where we were going. Brad worked his tail off lugging Osten around, so he was pretty beat. We ended up going to Rowdy Joe's for icecream and stayed for dinner. YUM. Very nice setting.
Excellent day and nice end to a long weekend.
