Over the weekend, Cindy and I enjoyed our first hike together since… well, we don’t need to revisit that, right? (If you missed it, you can catch up at this post.)
We hiked the bluffs over a Marine Reserve near Moss Beach:
Quick quiz. Can you identify everything the sign forbids?
(Better hurry, because here come the answers. No points for late papers.)
- Cancer Sticks
- Old Yeller (and all other Yellers)
- Drones and/or Crazy Hats
- Yanking fish comedians off the stage
- The most-excellent blog, Campfire Tales
- Tents and/or Puritanical Crazy Hats

hike casual stroll. Check out these majestic trees, perfectly lined up like soldiers!
(Could that be why they call this place a “marine reserve”? Sorry… I couldn’t resist.)
Cindy noticed the tags in the trees below. (Can you spot them too?) Were they from target practice?
The trees are numbered! Just like the days of our lives. (What, too dark?)
For those so inclined, there’s a beach below one end of the bluff where this cypress grove stands.
Not for me. Too many stairs! Sand in my shoes!
Exploring tide pools is allowed at the other end, but two things prevented my visiting them. 1. I’m a rule follower.
(Editor’s Note: There IS another entrance. Remember the sign? Look behind it.)
2. This is the only type of encounter with marine life that I truly enjoy:

Oh! One final quiz: Who was James V. Fitzgerald?
