After spending the morning photographing and listening to Cole on Weston Beach, we went to the picnic area for lunch. . . and more stories from Cole. . .
After lunch we moved to Cypress Grove and headed out on the trail to the point.
After showing us numerous places where his father had made images, Cole showed us a fallen Cypress near the far west end of the trail.
Leaning over this fallen tree reveals the bottom portion of the tree root photographed by Edward over 50 years ago.

Next we went to the beach just east of Sand Hill Cove where Cole showed us another one of Edward’s famous images from Point Lobos. . . strangely enough, this is just 15 feet from where I made a photo the previous year titled “Mysterious Rock.”
