Explore: Abalone Cove

I don't know why I never wrote about this, but T and I went with my cousin and his family to Abalone Cove in Rancho Palos Verdes this summer.  If you're going to visit you just have to check the tide schedule and make sure you make it there at low tide to get a glimpse of all the sea life.  You park on top of the cliff, take in this view...

as you begin your hike down.  Then you catch a glimpse of your goal.

After the descent you make your way along a rocky beach

And then you get there, get your feet wet (definitely wear water friendly shoes), and start to look around.

Lovely, vibrant sea urchins that can sting you.  They're everywhere, but they can be avoided.

The dry stone is pretty interesting also.

It looks so structured.

The starfish are fun too.

I definitely recommend a day trip if you haven't been.
