The Sun and the Sea
After a quick lunch at the local deli, we headed to another trail in the Pacific Rim National Park about 1.5 km from our campground. This trail led 1.2 km down a gravel walkway to 0.2 km of stairs (now that’s a lot of stairs) leading down to the beach. Zaph and Splash went crazy when they got to the beach. Splash because a wild creature running around as fast as she could and Zaph got into the “ready” position waiting for a toy to be thrown. There were moderately strong waves coming in, so it was fun to time throwing the toy so that the dog would be trying to fetch it as the wave crested and broke. Splash learned to turn her back into the wave and Zaph just body slammed it. Zaph had such a good time that we decided to head to the 2nd beach — up the stairs, walk a couple of hundred meters and down another series of ramps and stairs. This beach was smaller but very pretty and worked fine for playing chase the toy.
Back to the campground for a rinse off and some ball fetching to dry off. Ed and I headed to the hot tub to relax.
