Dairy to Davenport

Coast Dairies State Park offers some cool sea caves and a great beach, plus this pyramid of sorts.

Take a look at those people on the beach top-right for scale and you can see this thing is pretty big. There are two more people with light-colored shirts at the edge of the pyramid’s shadow, so I guess they ran across the narrow sand patch between waves and are confident the tide’s not coming in. Here’s a look from the other side offering a better view of that big cave up far enough that you can imagine how many storms have waves big enough to reach and carve it.

Dividing two big sandy beaches here is this narrow rock point with a well-worn path on top.

Continuing up the coast there are of course countless more sea caves, but this is one of the larger ones and has the added feature of another spire at water’s edge where a few brave souls probably climb it at low tide.

After yet more fascinating shoreline we come to the sweet little town of Davenport.

That cement plant at the left is somewhat of a marker for this last pic for today, with cool sea caves. Actually I guess they’re sea tunnels since they poke right through.
