200 Plastic Flamingo House

Not too far from Half Moon Bay is a house that has put plastic pink flamingos to the most practical use I've ever seen for them. If you head south on Hwy 1 from Half Moon Bay, and turn left on the Pescadero turn-off (Pescadero road) and travel along it till you suddenly enter under the shade of the redwoods you will see to your left across a stream bed a charming little 2-story brown Swiss chalet with spider plants growing out of every flat surface, and with the entire hillside between it and the creek embedded with easily 200 plastic flamingos being used as erosion control and holding up the hillside.
