One of many starfish at Secret Beach
We woke up today to a breakfast of parmesan cheese bagels with avocado, eggs and cheese. YUMMAY! We watched Dinosaur Train with Fisher before heading out to the secret beach, which I will not disclose the location of. Derek and I rode past it the day before and had no clue it was there. We had to climb down a steep cliff with a rope to help from slipping. At the bottom, we found a secret little cove with pebbles instead of sand. The rocks were the kind that you have to buy by the the scoop full in Florida souvenir shops. It was amazing! There were giant rocks out in the water and cliffs and jungle all around us. It is a very special place! Laurel showed us the tide pools off to the side which were FULL of bright orange and purple starfish and neon green envenoms. Straight out of a National Geographic magazine. It was fun to run around the beach with Fisher. We left and went to straight to their favorite pizza place. We got the lunch special, a build your own pizza with a salad and soda. Doesn't get any better than that! They needed a sucker fish to help clean their fish tank, so naturally we went to the pet store, but not before driving through the local park with a REDWOOD FOREST right in the middle of it! Only in California… Just as it seemed that things couldn't get any better, Laurel offered to bake some chocolate chip cookies. Yep, we were in heaven. At this point, Derek and I were not sure we could go back to the riding all day and sleeping in a tent lifestyle we had become accustomed to. How could we possibly make it?! The cookies turned out amazing, no surprise there. After cookies and left over pizza, we went to feed the horses across the street. This is getting a little sickening isn't it? I LOVE IT! We had an intense play session with Fisher again which included me slightly loosing my voice. That kid is full of energy! Also, Fisher and I devised a new way to fist pound. Instead of saying Pound It! Fisher heard Ka-But (pronounced Kuh-Boot). It is pretty much the coolest thing since sliced bread. I don't know if I am going to be able to leave this place tomorrow. I feel right at home.
