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.
We live in the most beautiful place and are lucky to be local to SLO ... SLOcal!
