• Flaws

    by Josh Massey

    Our ancestry has put us in a loop
    Although we may heal, we use the same crutch
    Something keeps sending us to jump through hoops
    Man’s experience has grown out of touch
    Developing new methods to old goals
    Man has kept himself in an endless rut
    Activities repeat for newborn souls
    Multi-floored mansions mimic clay built huts
    Cycling backwards, blinded by the ego
    Closed minds deafen us to sounds of progress
    A species shackled, throughout time we go
    Forever in grade school without recess

    Ignorance holds us back like cancer
    Some talking monkeys searching for answers

  • 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.
