• Beauty

    by Brianna Sanders

    Beauty is a creature
    Vile, hungry, insidious,
    Leading lives astray by its rapture,
    Listless, unyielding, drooling;
    In her wake lay hanging jaws.
    Beauty is a siren,
    Spouting temptation from her maw,
    Wasted corpses are all you’ll find,
    Of young maidens with beauty in mind,
    For a skeleton is beautiful,
    And in the name of that beauty,
    These things are more than plentiful,
    For she is nothing but a plague,
    Tempting weaker orbs to linger and feast,
    Upon the presence of this monster.
    But do not give in,
    For beauty is a beast!

  • Beach Report Card


    This is the Heal the Bay Beach Report Card for Monterey Peninsula beaches, which reports water quality grades, or when relevant, weather advisories. An A to F grade is assigned based on the health risks of swimming or surfing at that location. Look at the "dry" grade for all days except those "wet" days during and within 3 days after a rainstorm. Click here for more information on the Beach Report Card. Click the name of the beach when it pops up for more details, or choose a beach below.
