    By Julia Sweigart

    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.
