• Contrails

    by Kory Milar

    A long white trail across the sky
    Like a brush stroke slowly painted
    Upon a limitless blue canvas

    I look down for a moment
    Lost in creativity

    When my gaze meets the sky once more
    The creator has vanished into the sun
    And the blue has begun to engulf the
    A fleeting message, one straight line
    A single scar mars the azure skin of the
    and then it’s gone.

    I like to pretend, for a moment
    That God was bored up there
    So he ran his finger, ever so slowly,
    Ever so gently, along the barrier,
    Between Heaven and Earth.

  • 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.
