Crystal Cove State Park New Year’s Day 2020


You never know what may become a new family tradition, for the second time in three years, we spent New Year’s Day 2020 at Crystal Cove State Park in sunny southern California.

From it’s website (http://www.crystalcovestatepark.org/): Crystal Cove State Park is one of Orange County’s largest remaining examples of open space and natural seashore. It features 3.2 miles of beach, 2,400 acres of backcountry wilderness and an offshore underwater area.

The Park has an excellent beach and if you visit at the right time of day, i.e. low tide, their are many tidal pools for exploration.
