My Mom and I went to California at the end of September. Our first stop after we got out of L.A. was Abalone Cove Shoreline Park. I'd heard about it online and thought it sounded cool. It definitely was, but it was hard to get to, and we had to park illegally to avoid a really heavy parking fee, so I was only able to run down to the shore and take a couple of pictures before we had to leave. Oh well--I love the ocean!!
