The high tide tonight at Shell Beach gave us quite a show. There was a large pod of dolphins off shore and birds flying and diving into the water everywhere; the Pelicans were my favorite to watch. Usually we come here during low tide to explore the pools, but this was a different experience and one not to be missed. Pelican hill March and April are prime months for all the waterfalls in Yosemite. Be still my heart! Harbor seal hanging out on a rock. Best way to get up close is a kayak tour to the sea caves. Half Dome in the distance. This is truly gods country. June 2016 I will hike this beauty for the first time! According to Wikipedia; Another beautiful #sunset in #PismoBeach Resident Pelican!

This stairwell took me to a beautiful little stretch of beach below Dolphin Bay Spa & Resort.
Great tide-pools! Many years ago the Stairway was a bridge to the roadway. Now that a trending restaurant is next to it there are plans to repair it in the coming years. Massive tree that eroded off of the cliff and onto Shell Beach due to the intense rainfall the state had this season! Ye-Haw!
Neon outside the surf shop by the pier. This is a rib sampler. A must try. This years Clam Festival Clam Art! Miles and miles of dunes! Great place to fly a kite and watch wind surfing on a breezy day. Rent a sand vehicle and get a little rowdy with the local Whenever I head through the Central Coast of California, I always try to make a stop at Pismo Beach Pier. It's great for sunsets, people watching, or fishing off the pier.
