Nature walk

One day while we were camping at Patrick's Point me and my little man set off on a little adventure. He wanted to see where each path and fork in the road led and I obliged him as I knew it would be a little bonding time for us as well as a great opportunity to take some photos of the foliage around the area. With camera in hand, or on back rather, we set off on our nature walk.On occasion he would check to make sure I was still with him since I was stopping here and there taking photos of stuff. This pretty little flower is called "Queen Anne's Lace". It grows wild and some were over 6 feet tall!Look at how they close in on the trails.Ferns were growing all over the place. There were parts of the forest that felt kind of tropical with the flowers and ferns even though it was in Northern California.These flowers bloomed from what looked like pea pods which I thought was pretty interesting.You can't really tell from the picture, but these creatures are actually pretty large for a slug. They are called "Banana Slugs" and I think it's pretty obvious as to why.I loved this little leaf because it looks like a heart. ♥This is actually a weed and not a flower, but I loved how the condensation had settled inside the little prickles.The are is so green and lush.We took some time out to enjoy the beautiful views.
And to allow him some time to enjoy one of his favorite features of the area, "The Sand Wall".

Our little excursion ended up lasting several hours and we were both pretty tired when we returned, but we wouldn't have had it any other way.
Thanks again for spending a little time with me.

not sure why I am just seeing this now, but it looks like you had a great time, and got some awesome pics! I love the heart shaped leaf - did you take that just for Brad?

I sure did! It seemed like even the leaves were reminding me of his absence. lol
