The rain had broken a little by the time we finished eating and we strolled the beaches at Pismo. Most of the people had left when the rain came so we had most of the beach to ourselves. There wasn’t much to do so we didn’t stay long, but I was able to find some small objects to photograph while we were there. This particular rock stood out because of its odd placement in the whole landscape. Carefully placed with no foot prints around to give away who left it there.
