Pismo Beach

Pismo Creek

Just hundreds of feet from where our RV is parked…

The trail is sandy and narrow as it winds around the creek, but beyond the sand dunes in the distance lies Pismo Beach.

Meanwhile we enjoy the scenery as we slog through the sand…

Wind-battered trees…

Ice plants…

The ice plant is an invasive succulent shrub Native to the coast of South Africa where the climate is similar to coastal California. In the early 1900s it was introduced to the state as an erosion stabilizer tool used on railroad tracks and roadsides. It was also sold as an ornamental plant. The ice plant spreads easily and forms a large thick mat that chokes out native plants and alters soil composition. (wildlife.ca.gov)

And finally we reach the Pacific Ocean…
