Two nights at Jalama Beach - "as waves crashed ashore"

We arrived late Wednesday evening, set up camp and retired for the night.
Thursday morning: Waves break on the beach as dawn breaks on the horizon.
First footsteps to the beach.
Sunrise at Jalama Beach County Park. When we arrived the night before and all the beach campsites were full but no one was camping in the main campground.

Later that afternoon we walked over to the store and ordered a couple of Jalama Burgers.
Gulls like this one made quite a ruckus when landing on the FWC's roof.
The Coast Starlight stopped on the Jalama Creek bridge as the sun set over the Pacific.
Jan watches the same sunset as Coast Starlight passengers.

Just before leaving Jalama Beach FWC owners Betsy and Joe from Ventura, CA stopped by our camp. It was a pleasure to chat with them. I neglected to take a photo of their FWC.
I departed Jalama at 1:15, riding my bike east across the Jalama Ranch, racing Jan the 14 miles back to Highway 1. Jan left at 1:50 and passed me about 1/2 mile from Jalachichi Summit. Next time I will ask for a 50 minute head start.


  1. Now, that burger just made me hungry! looks yummy.... i love the beach look and your self proclaimed 'sculpture'. great post.

  2. The Jalama Burger was very tasty. Just thinking about it makes me want another.
