After two busy days, we decided to just relax today. We spent a lot of time working on the campground program, “Mysteries of the Deep Blue Sea,” which shares about Gray Whales and our four Pinnipeds. A long stroll through the back of the park’s picnic areas yielded quite a few birds. Dinner was our own Halibut tacos. We ended with a ride to the Bandon Marsh, and then picked up the gov. car for tomorrow. Instead of going home, we treated ourselves to a DQ while we watched the birds and Harbor Seals at Coquille Point and Tablerock overlooks.
