We just spent the day at Jalama Beach. We took the leisurely winding drive from Hwy 101 to Jalama Beach. We saw lots of deer and the scenery was beautiful this time of year, although dry.
We got out our beach chairs and had a lovely time reading, "people watching" and sunbathing until we decided to walk on the beach. We got black tar oil on the bottom of our feet and between our toes...YIKES! It was a pain to get it off! I can't imagine people with children or dogs digging in the sand and getting tar oil all over them. We could see an oil rig in the distance across the water and I'm sure that is where the oil was coming from. They really need to do something to clean this up.
The park rangers were very friendly and other than the tar oil, we enjoyed our day at Jalama Beach.
