|Spring Break in Pismo Beach|
|There are rentals on the beach|
Our site here at the State Beach is large and grassy with no hookups, so boondocking continues to be our modus operandi. There are paths leading to huge sandy dunes covered in blooming ice plant, and large groves of gnarly Eucalyptus trees housing the seasonal migrating Monarch butterflies. We spotted a few stragglers, but October thru February is more the season.

Mornings start with beachcombing! I have a 3.5 mile course along a dune path south to beach, then north to pier, thru town and back. The Sandpipers dance and the fog rolls in and out. I find an occasional intact Sand Dollar....A prize!
The pier structure fascinates me.....
But now we need to get ready for this really big weekend plus a day...that's 4 days of family and grandkids, so we're off to buy hotdogs, hamburgers, fixins' for smores, chips, dips, brownie bites, blueberries, potato salad...and wine (for your's truly)! The kids are renting a small RV and driving down from Half Moon Bay, about 200 miles north. There will be lots of pictures, so stay tuned.....
