Every year we hit the trails of Point Lobos State Reserve with a few friends for an Easter Egg hunt. This year, the final clue to the scavenger hunt led them to "where the flesh of giants used to boil." The blubber pots outside the cabin at Whaler's Cove! If the whalers were successful, they towed the carcass back to the cove, hoisted it from the water and sliced it into strips, then chunks. The pieces were placed into these large iron cauldrons called "try pots," to produce oil for fuel. History and a holiday collide for some great family fun.April 10, 2012 Like Add a Comment
