The bluffs east of Naples 12-2-06
Join us for another fun and educational beach walk on Saturday, March 3rd. The hike will leave promptly at 1 PM from the Public Access parking lot at Haskell's Beach adjoining the Bacara Resort. Please arrive no later than 12:45. The walk is a little more than 1 1/2 miles each way and crosses a rocky point that will be mostly dry on this day due to a -0.4 low tide. Allow three hours to leisurely complete the walk and bring a pair of old beach shoes, a sunhat, and any water or snacks needed for the walk. No dogs are allowed in order to protect the wildlife. Please car pool if possible. In case of rain, the hike will be held the next day, March 4th at the same time and place.
Last December 125 people walked the beach to Naples and due to requests the Coalition is repeating the event. Pictures from the first hike can be viewed at http://www.swt.org/act/naples1206.
Directions: from Santa Barbara take Highway 101 North and exit at Winchester Canyon. Cross over Highway 101 on the overpass (left turn) which then becomes Hollister avenue. At Hollister, take an immediate right at the Sandpiper Golf course and continue west towards the Bacara Resort. Before reaching the Bacara Resort, at the bottom of a small hill, turn left into the signed Public Access parking lot.
