Tidepooling near Spyglass Park in Pismo Beach 🦀

The king tides blessed us with another negative tide. Joy, Rocko, and I took the opportunity to check out the tidepools at the base of the cliffs, accessed from Spyglass Park in Pismo Beach.

We carefully scrambled down a wash to get to the pocket beach. Joy is gesturing to the way down in the image below.

I was hoping for an octopus, but the kids were very pleased with the sea anemones, snails, barnacles, chitons, and the feeding egret.

We explored for a while, as the sun set and the sky darkened. Then we scrambled back up the cliff and played in the playground until it was dark and time to go eat dinner.
