Crimson Tide

Duncans Landing ~ Sonoma Coast, California


On a recent trip out to the coast...


I was driving along and spotted this amazing crimson red from a distance and just knew I HAD to investigate! The ice plant is a beautiful rusty reddish orange color this time of year. I was hoping to catch it when the flowers of the ice plant are in bloom (it's a little early for that) — their colors range from a lovely pale yellow to a vibrant magenta, which is absolutely GORGEOUS. Hugging the cliffs, just beyond the ice plant, was a lovely patch of bright yellow mustard...a yummy icing on an already delicious cake. I have been up and down this coast many many times over the years, but I don't recall ever stopping at Duncans Landing — I usually make stops at other favorite points along the way. SO happy I decided to check out this spot! I will definitely make it a regular stop on future visits.


Happy Easter everyone! :-)
