Succulent with Light Purple Flowers

These purple flowers can carpet areas near the beach all over California. They’re flowers of a succulent plant, which I don’t know the name of. Some of these succulents have bigger flowers that are yellow.

If anyone has more info on these succulents, please comment.

This photograph is part of a larger one that I cropped out. The picture was taken with a Canon 5D with a Canon L series 24-105mm lens.
