Back from camping

So it was a lot of fun. Being away with Steve and "roughing" it...
Really I don't rough it much. I mean it isn't say as luxurious as staying at a hotel but it isn't tent camping either.

We were pretty much alone after Sunday afternoon. It was like a ghost town.
We were @ Bodega Bay Dunes State Park:
Sonoma State Beach features coastland with beaches, reefs, coves, tidepools, headlands, and natural arches. With more than ten miles of shore, 5,000 acres, this state beach is one of the largest in the state. The park stretches from Bodega Head to the Russian River. There is a five-mile trail system in the dunes. The beach is home to one of California's largest seal rookeries. In the winter, Bodega Head is one of the finest whale-watching sites on the North Coast. The park is also home to many kinds of seabirds. The ocean bay and river frontage offers perch, salmon, steelhead and smelt fishing.

Steve and I did some exploring but mostly we hung out at the camp ground and the ocean.
The wind was pretty strong on Sunday and the waves were incredible to watch.
