Sanderlings at the Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area rush in and out of the waves on a warm Easter Sunday. Many visitors were departing after a weekend at the dunes, but there were still plenty of picnickers and people walking along the sand in the fine afternoon weather. According to the staff at the entrance stations, Saturday had been a busy day at the dunes.
