Past these cliffs was another huge white sand beach. This beach was not long across the waterline, perhaps a kilometer, but at low tide it extended a kilometer or more from shore to the other side of the sand. A huge flat expanse of sand! Penny stopped us here because she wanted to look for shells. She described to us how to find certain kinds of shellfish: Look for a track in the sand and follow it until it ends, then dig down and pull out the animal that made the trail. She demonstrated this and pulled a small green moon snail out of some wet sand. She exclaimed: “It’s like going on an Easter egg hunt!” I went on my own hunt and found another beautiful moon snail. Since someone was still at home inside behind the trap door, I could not bear to take it with me and buried it in the sand again. I did find a few nice sand pesos that were already dead so I took those home as souvenirs. Back in the water we rounded some low hills and stopped at the next beach. This spot had a bunch of little dunes with trails between them. We had planned a short day and were originally going to the next beach, called Ensenada Alcratraz, only a few kilometers away. We decided to stay the night at this lunch spot where we could each have a private place to set up a tent between the little dunes.
