North Coast

Trinidad State Beach
The northern coast of California extends for hundreds of miles – rocky coves and pebbly beaches, silvery driftwood logs tossed up willy nilly on the sand, tide pools inhabited with exciting sea creatures for kids to discover, where towering redwood groves meet the sea, and the tang of salt air is so sweet.
