We found another striking spot on Sunday, between Ft. Bragg and Westport, just north of the Pacific Star Winery. According to the guidebook it is Bruhel Point, though there is not a sign indicating that name at the pullout. There are picnic tables and benches and a trail toward the water.
We started out in the afternoon and ended up walking on the rocks with the sun sinking into the water–everything was silver.
As the tide came in it created small waterfalls across the rock formations.
Huge tidepools filled and emptied. A pair of California seals lay sunning themselves on the rocks nearby.
Trails follow the top of the bluffs overlooking the water. There were a few other people out walking, but not very many.
