We started out on the South Shore Trail, following it along the coast and admiring it all. We loved watching the waves crash up against the rocks, and stood mesmerised for several minutes watching a small jet of water that blew through a crevice every time the waves made it high enough. By far the craziest thing about the entire experience, though, was just how mind-numbingly blue the water was. It’s true, I’ve seen blue water in my days, but I’d never seen anything like this. It was a deep, crystal clear blue, and it was easily the most entrancing thing that I’ve ever seen.
From the South Shore trail we made our way along the Sand Hill trail to admire some more stunning blue waters and crazy rock formations, and then doubled back to where we had parked our car and further on towards “The Slot” where we were able to climb down closer towards the ocean and found some pretty cool little tide pools.
I dragged my feet as we returned the car, not ready to leave the place that I was so sure I was meant to spent the rest of my days. Given the chance to return to Point Lobos, I would love to be able to explore the sections of forest further away from the shore, as well as spend more time simply staring out at the ocean and contemplating my existence, as I so enjoy doing. I’m sure that one day I’ll be back.
