Salt Point Expedition 2002 August 1 - 9

Day 2

We just got back from a visit to the shorline down around Gerstle Cove. We hiked over there to do some preliminary exploring. Jackie was annoyed with Shannon, and the two were picking at each other, which got Crystal annoyed with Jackie, so we split the party up. Jackie went with me and Shannon went with Crystal.

Crystal and Shannon checked out Gerstle Cove proper, while Jackie and I hiked up the coastline around the north end of the cove to take pictures of seals and tidepools. We saw a dead shark on the rocks and Jackie fearlessly climbed down the wobbly and steeply piled rocks to look at it, with me scrabbling carefully down after her. The shark was really rotten. It smelled like seafood (no kidding). The eyes were gone, and so were all of the teeth. Where'd those go? Tourists? We saw lots of crabs, mostly purple and green shore crabs. Crystal and Shannon hiked back to camp and arrived about ten minutes ahead of us.
