Joe Leyva, 65, and his granddaughter Leia Leyva, 9, stand at their campsite, which flies the American flag at Dockweiler State Beach in Playa del Rey. Even though he has a camper trailer, Joe enjoys sleeping in a tent, background, on the beach. “I’ve been coming here all my life,” Joe said while camping with three generations of his family.
