Was itching to go somewhere and have a proper photo shoot day, so I looked up things to do in Carmel and happened upon a place called Point Lobos State Reserve. Saw some cool photos on Flickr, so that's where we went last Saturday. We didn't get too far away from where we parked, but we had an awesome couple hours or so exploring the rock formations and tide pools near the spot we stopped. I think it was somewhere near Weston Beach that we spent all our time. Point Lobos is a huge park, so we barely, barely even scratched the surface of what we could do there. We'll definitely go back again sometime and get there earlier in the day so we can fit more activities in, but I was pretty content with the time we spent there that day.
The hubby was always off somewhere else while I was taking photos. Apparently I was moving too slowly for his tastes, so he'd go off and explore, then I'd catch up whenever I was done photographing stuff in a particular area. Often he'd get somewhere seemingly inaccessible, and I'd have to ask him how in the heck he got out there so I could follow. :-/
