From our campsite just south of Florence it’s about a mile to the first beach access. The road then parallel’s the beach heading north for a few miles to the jetty. At the end of the jetty road is a gravel parking lot where I will read, photograph the seals, and feed the squirrels while Ryan’s catches a few waves. It’s a great spot!
Unfortunately it’s been closed for the past few weeks at the third beach access point, so you can’t drive to the parking lot. If your planning a beach trip over spring break, I would suggest either sticking with the north jetty access or bring everyone’s bike! This road is great for a family bike ride down to the jetty and it’s very quiet once you get there.
Yesterday we parked with my parents and walked the closed road and enjoyed a quiet beach at our destination.
It was probably a mile walk on this closed road till we found a quiet beach on the bay side. The dogs had a wonderful time, Jayden found some shells for his hermit crabs and Joey was busy identifying birds.
Coco is a total water dog! She will play in the breaking waves until she can’t walk anymore. Rio is more of an indoor girl, but she was a trooper Sunday. Usually if Rio gets wet at all she wants to be held.
We were hoping to spot some wildlife on our walk, but despite all the tracks my dad saw, we didn’t see anything. This is usually the case though when we bring doggies.😳
Did you venture out on any hikes this weekend? What was your weekend like?
