Before any good beach hike begins it's important to get some grub. I think this place looks great, how can you go wrong with a place that has a big sign sayings "fox". We went for the clam chowder in a bread bowl. I give it two paws up.
After a windy hike along the coast I ended up at the "D River". According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the "D River" is the shortest river in the world going only 430 feet from Devils' Lake to the Pacific Ocean (pre 1989). Wikipedia says the Roe River in Montana was listed as the shortest river in the world and took the title away from the "D River" in 1989 but the people of this coastal town are persistent and measured the river from the lake at an extreme high tide which made the river only 120 feet and the people at Guinness said that the "D River" was truly the shortest river in the world. On a side note Guinness stopped reporting on that subject in 2006 (probably a good idea in the long run).

|I have to support myself on this sand so I don't get blown away by the wind.|
|Sequoia loves the wind in his face.|
|It's a long walk back to the car.|
With the flag flying and the sun out I feel it's my patriotic duty to go inside the casino and try my luck on the slot machines. My roommates nixed that idea saying we could not go in because of Sequoia. I am not sure I believe that but hopefully we can stop for ice cream or salt water taffy on the way home.
