The two RV Gypsies enjoyed
Strawberry Hill - May 12, 2009

As of this date, the two RV Gypsies found Strawberry Hill to be the most fascinating place they have visited in the continental USA. They spent hours just watching the waves and the froth.
Below: The tunnel leading to Strawberry Hill - The sign over the tunnel indicated that lights will flash if bicycles are in the tunnel and the speed limit for cars would then be lowered.

When the two RV Gypsies got down by the Pacific Ocean, the stood on a cliff and looked at a small island of rocks. Waves come in from the left side of the rocks (as seen below in the photo on the left), and waves come in from the right side of the rocks (as seen in the photo below on the right).

The waves from the left met with the waves from the right, and exploded into bubbling white froth and splashed upwards. What an amazing sight!

After the froth combined in the middle, it separated and went back to the side of the cliff it came from. The wave and froth action repeated over and over again.

More waves crashed upon the rocks before rounding the corner and becoming milky white froth. The splash in the photo on the right looks like spilled milk.

Below: A series of photos showing Karen Duquette just sitting and enjoying the view of the waves coming in, turning to white froth and exploding up to where her feet were dangling, forcing her to move up higher on the rocky cliff. Even though it was a bit of a cool day, Karen was fascinated by the wave and froth action and the two RV Gypsies stayed there for hours.

The froth attacked Karen's shoes, so she had to move upward.

The white froth splashed upon the rocks, then slowly cascaded down the rocks, and headed back out to the ocean

lots of froth
During a lull in the waves, Lee crossed over onto the rock island. Karen tried to cross but the waves started coming in too quickly and Lee found himself in trouble trying to get back because when the waves came in, the water and froth were deep enough to soak their shoes, and they were worried about getting back to safety on time.

The waves were getting bigger and stronger, and the froth was splashing higher, so the two RV Gypsies decided it was finally time to leave.

Some last views (zoomed in) downward from the road above. Year later when the two RV Gypsies returned here, there were no crashing waves and no sea froth. They learned that this was a once-in-a-lifetime experience caused by a previous storm that had happed in the area, and it had not occurred again in the years between the two RV Gypsies' visits.
