Curved rock at Old Home

This is a photo essay of one of Trinidad’s resplendent, uncrowded, picturesque beaches.  All photos taken by Annalisa Rush, all rights reserved 2012. Double click on image to enlarge.

This quiet, wave-sheltered beach is just right for a peaceful stroll. The surf is gentle, the sand is dreamy, and the beach inspires exploration of its diverse features. It is a safe and enjoyable place for small children to wade and play. Be sure to visit this beach during low tide. Access the trail of stairs at the Trinidad Memorial Lighthouse. Directly below California registered historical landmark No. 838 was located the ancient Yurok village of Tsurai. A permanent Indian community of the past, the houses were of hand-split redwood planks, designed for defense and protection. The village was occupied until 1916 (source: Tsurai villagers launched their canoes into the ocean from here. Each rock and place has a special name and meaning.
