With a trail passing right by our hotel how could Coppertone and I pass up the opportunity to walk at least a part of it?

With a bit of down time before dinner we walked out of our door and onto the trail, heading north towards the core of MacKerricher State Park.  The trail along here is a straight shot along the coast, but not close enough for picturesque ocean views, at least in the mile of distance we covered.
