We explored, checked out the sea life, picked up a few sea snails. But all the excitement was right here, the cliffs right next to the tide pools.
You see, 2 raccoon youths managed to come down the cliffs and gt themselves stuck down on the rocks during low tide and high tide was back on its way.
So a few park rangers quickly organized a rescue effort, a raccoon rescue that is. This ranger went down , very close to the animals and clapped his hand and a made a big ruckus...trying to scare them up the cliff. They tried, but were obviously in distress, I could her them crying and chattering from up where I was observing.
Look at his cute mask!
This is my point of view, where I was standing.
Things started to click with the furry rascals and they began to make their way up the steep climb.
There was a quiet cheer from the onlookers as the first one emerged.
They both came up, but seem kind of confused with all the people around, so the ranger had everyone move back.
And it was a happy ending for everyone involved. These two were well on their way back to their home and momma.
