Aug 14, 2016 - Shelter Cove

The adventure today started in Shelter Cove with its black sand beaches and the best fish and chips at Shelter Cove RV & Deli. Unfortunately their grill was broken. They suggested the pizza place down the road. Just down the road was a park with a lighthouse, so we decided to visit that first. In Mal Coombs Park the Shelter Cove Lighthouse stands in the center.

The road from Hwy 101 to Shelter Cove was a 25 mile twisty, narrow, windy road that climbed from 300 above sea level to 2200 feet above sea level in 6.5 miles. Yikes! Of course, Kathy was freaking out because of the, uh, cliffs - but we made it. :))
