Bluff Cove

We’re finally right in the middle of summer, and it’s been absolutely wonderful. I’ve enjoyed soaking up every bit of sun that’s possible. As a result, I’ve turned a pretty nice shade of brown, and I’ve seen some pretty incredible things.

We headed down toward Palos Verdes last weekend to Bluff Cove for what was described as a 7-mile hike. It was more a trek across rocks and boulders, and I enjoyed every single minute of it. There’s something about jumping across rocks that’s just a whole lot of fun. And there was certainly a lot of that. We trudged across the beach for what seemed like bend after bend, taking in the ocean and the absolute peace. Once past the surfing area, we only saw a couple of other people and were able to enjoy most of the hike in relative silence.

On the way, we ran into a couple who asked if we had seen Shipwreck Cove. I had no idea what they were talking about so I answered that I didn’t think so but there were still miles to walk. When I returned home, I searched online, intrigued by the idea of a shipwreck and discovered that the metal scraps we had seen along the way were probably remnants of a 1962 shipwreck. Very cool!

It was a pretty wonderful way to spend a day. The sun, the calm, the ocean. It was all so very beautiful.

Incredible, incredible view of the ocean.

Part of the shipwreck, I'm guessing.

I had to stop and stare frequently.
