Flowers along the trail are coming out slowly and in no great numbers yet. The area that is most flowery is the headlands area that is above and to the south of the bridge. There are displays of Goldfields on the headlands and also Footsteps-of -Spring, California Buttercups, Hog Fennel, white form of Baby Blue-eyes and Johnny Tuck. Seen along the main trail were most of the above as well as a few California Poppy, Salmonberry, Manroot, Big Marsh Buttercup, Candy Flower, Gumplant, Starrry Chickweed, a few Fiddlenecks in bud, and lots of Miners Lettuce. Even the beach was sparse as the tide was up (it was the highest I have seen it, possibly due to Tsunnami) and much of it was underwater. All that were visible at the Beach were a few Gumplant, Beach Suncup and Beach Strawberry.
