Palos Verdes

The flowers all over southern California are incredible right now. I made it up for a hike along the bluffs of Rancho Palos Verdes Peninsula and caught this pic of a type of bird I’d never seen before, against a backdrop of a lush field of yellow flowers that will probably be gone and dried within just a few weeks.

    You’ve found a hidden treasure. Next time, go to the end of Pacific Ave and make a right. Follow the winding, slipping road until you get to the “Glass Church”. It’s about 3 or 4 miles. Park your car and walk about 100 yards south. Look for a hole in the fence leading towards the ocean. walk down the dirt road about a 1/4 mile to the ocean. There you will find the most amazing huge tide pools you’ve ever seen and a beach you can skinny dip in with no one around. Super secret spot. IT’s called Jap’s Cove because during WW2, they built miles of underground tunnels along that unblemished coastline fearing a Japanese invasion. The tunnels are mostly boarded up now. But the coastline there is amazing. Puts Crystal Cove and Laguna to shame. BTW….Shhhh!
