San Onofre

We threw care to the wind and headed an hour north to the San Onofre State Beach, 3,000 acres of coastline and cliffs immediately north of Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base.
This might be my favorite SoCal beach so far. I really like its rural isolated feel. There's plenty of room for people to spread out. And the natural scenery is spectacular.

This really cool succulent was growing everywhere along the base of the sandstone cliffs. Anybody know its name?
The twin bubble silhouettes in the background are part of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station which supplies electricity to 1.5 million Southern Californians.

Another magical California sunset.
