Ladder to Nuevo

About 3/4 mile South of a place gMaps calls China Ladder is this interesting shoreline with grooved flat rocks at the foot of the cliff, one of them ending in a sea cave.

To the right of center is a red “emblem” on the cliff, where rock has fallen away to reveal what’s apparently an iron deposit.

Just on the other side of China Ladder is this rocky cliff that to me looks a bit like some bizarre carved pumpkin.

Waddell Beach offers a picturesque wide strand with beautiful views up the canyon, punctuated by those white tracks in the water offshore.

This is a popular spot for kite & wind surfers to rip those white tracks, or at least it was on this particular day.

The whole Ano Nuevo area offers another kind of spectacular combining much of what we’ve seen so far, with a scrub dune inviting long walks.

Trails lead along this shore past Ano Nuevo Point to the more serene looking yet perhaps more wind blown Franklin Point.

With sandy beaches to the North and low carved rock to the South, Franklin Point offers a panoramic bench amid the hardy colorful scrub.
