When the tide is low in Ocean Beach, I love checking out the coastal nature preserve at the end of Dog Beach. Kinda funny that dog beach is surrounded by any kind of fragile anything. I was on the ground trying to take a picture of one of these pretty little yellow flowers and my big doofy Labrador stepped on it. Because that’s who he is. He’s a guy who steps on things, knocks them over with his head and booty, etc. It always amazes me what cool little plants and wildflowers I find when the San Diego River is low.
