The decks at the top of each stairway have this pentagonal center, and most of them have a bench so you can sit and watch the ocean. It’s still around 70 by the time we get out to walk, so it’s very pleasant.
The campground is less populated now, with many campsites empty, and the camp store is open only on weekends. It’s as if a town shuts down, or at least pulls up some of its stakes (literally here, in some cases) and hunkers down for the non-winter to come. What a terrific time to visit, with fewer people, still-balmy weather, and, at many hotels, reduced rates. You are welcome!
