I went on a day trip with my sister and her kids down to Big Sur. We stopped by Pfieffer Beach, which has a couple tunnels in these big rock hills through which the surf crashes. It was a really nice day out as well.   Smile
That's me way up on the rock. I was watching some whales that were breaching out to sea (my sister took the pictures):

And one of the tunnel-things I mentioned:

Theses stones are actually the remnants of some ancient fortifications as the local population used to use this hill as a fort in times of need.

Silver Birch is my favourite. I love touching the velvety bark.
