So once we realized that our few days away was going to be a very short afternoon and a long drive home we went into the dunes for a ride.
This is what we saw. There were campers, trucks, sand rails, quads, dirt bikes, tents, etc. from the lower parts of the sand highway all the way to the water front at high tide.
As if riding around in the dunes and making space for your own track with in the confines of caution tape (to claim your personal territory) weren't enough, someone brought in a Bounce House.
This guy was out to make a buck. His truck has the capability to pump out fresh water , pump out water from holding tanks, sell ice, and sell some fire wood. Who needs to go to town when you have someone like that?
Yep, this tow truck was busy too. We saw him and his compadres coming and going, towing trucks out of the place. I wonder how many axles, drive lines, etc. broke down this weekend. You can't read it, but it said Tonka on the front fender. That was the main reason I took the picture. The boys thought it was the coolest ever.
Pismo also had a very large section of beach closed off, which is why everyone appeared to be on top of each other. They are trying to save these two birds, one is the Snowy Plover and the other I can't remember. Apparently they are on the endangered list and lay their eggs in the sand.
As you can see, fun was had by all. Luke and Trevor were busy running their Tonka's through the water.
