• Ellen

    By Julia Sweigert

    She walks with the rest

    The same, yet different.

    She stands out alone

    Smaller, but so much bigger.

    She lags behind while

    Trying harder than anyone to keep up.

    She holds a special place in my heart as in the

    Hearts of so many others

    Irreplaceable, she is so perfect

    In her own unique way.

    Some may talk about her or

    Laugh or point at her.

    *Does it care? Does she care?

    Once they know her,

    She becomes a precious jewel in

    Their lives.

    Amidst change and hardship

    She remains the same,

    Dependable and strong.

  • 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.
