    Great photos – was this from recently? It looks nice and warm! Which was your fav town?

    • Thanks! I was there middle September 2012.
      The weather was pretty warm during the day and pretty cold at night.
      The ocean was freezing!
      Each town had something special about it =)..The best trail I did was 7a i think?
      Have you visited there?
