Life on California's beautiful Central Coast

Lewis and Clark were here

They encountered the Pacific around the area of present day Long Beach, WA in 1804. Inscribing his name on a tree, Clark added “by land” so all those wimps who came by ship would know what’s up.

Clark saw a big sturgeon on the beach. He also saw a halibut, but didn't know what it was.

The explorers also saw a whale skeleton, which is commemorated along the bike path.

The present-day dunes are the product of shifting sand deposits caused by man-made jetties along the coast.
