Lots of different plants around here as we make our usual morning walk.
When the moon is full or new, the gravitational pull of the moon and sun are combined making the high tides very high and the low tides are very low. This is known as a spring tides which are especially strong tides (they do not have anything to do with the season Spring). They occur when the Earth, the Sun, and the Moon are in a line
This must have been a spring tide with tide as high as 6-7 feet and well over the sea walls. The surfers were out in full force.
The ocean looked like it just got filled.
A good way to carry a surfboard. We have seen bobs set up behind motorcycles for boards.
The tides were so forceful throwing rocks and sand into the streets. This fellow shoveling the sand and rock for the street sweeper reminded me of shoveling our snow in Colorado.
The loader clears the rocks and then sweeps the sand from the streets.
This boy's mom said he loved getting his bike stuck in the sand and peddling to dig a hole. He was giving it some peddle action and proud of the hole he dug.
The 1986 movie Top Gun house, about the United States Navy's elite fighter weapons school is going to be renovated.
All of the black dots in the ocean are surfers that love these waves. Living across the street from the beach we see a lot of surfers come and go. There was a couple from Keystone, Colorado that were ready to escape the snow. They were going to Trestle Beach but the beached whale that had died was luring in the sharks.
Now we have a family from Switzerland next to us. They rented a camper van to spend 40 days in California. They are so excited about the diversity of California from San Francisco to Yosemite. They just say everything is just different everywhere they go. At home, they surf in Italy or south of France.
