I decided to keep on going south along the same trail I took yesterday. I happened upon a family that had two people out in the water abalone diving. I tried to take some pictures of them out there but they didn't come out very well. I got quite irritated and sad when I saw that the kids had taken a starfish off of the rock he was on and moved him somewhere else. I tried to explain to the little girl why it isn't good to tear them off of the rocks and is better to just leave them be. I think I decided that I would write a children's book about how to visit the tidepools to educate them about everything they see there.
I saw many deer today, too many to count, matter of fact I've seen a multitude of animals here including: seals, tidepool creatures, wild turkeys, many types of birds, today I saw a snake and sheep, and others.
After feeling somewhat antsy yesterday I decided to just spend as much time outside today as possible. Because of the overcast sky it's not as windy and it's much nicer to be outdoors. I decided to walk to the chapel. I followed the trail through the meadow and the woods to get there. One of the many things I love about this magical place is the many different types of environments here. One minute you can be out in a meadow listening to birds and the ocean and the next minute you can be in a cypress grove or a forest that reminds me of the Ewok forest from Star Wars. Matter of fact the first house that we ever stayed in at Sea Ranch really reminded me of that, as a kid I felt like an Ewok could come out of the forest at any minute. On my way to the chapel I came across the sea Ranch herd of sheep, it was kind of funny!
The chapel at Sea Ranch is absolutely amazing. It was built as a non-denominational one for every person to find quiet and peace. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.
There was so much more that I wanted to say in this post but now that I'm not out in the wonderful environment I forgot a lot of it. Enjoy the pictures!
