Crescent City to DeMartin Picnic Area

After filling up with gas, we drove a few miles down the coast and stopped at a picnic area.  Vick had collated all of the cheese and crackers bits and pieces from the other night, which we filled up on on the beach.

In the late afternoon, we drove out to a forest for a very brief walk to stretch our legs.
