• Hope

    by Erika McLitus

    Tossing pebbles into the river
    Watching them sink below
    Barely able to contain the shiver
    That rattles and shakes my soul

    Dropping pebbles into the wishing well
    Like stars peering through the gloom
    Feeling my heart expand and swell
    The sensation leaving far too soon

    Grasping, holding onto a tenuous thread
    Fraying by the minute
    Embracing the words my loved ones said
    Once upon a forever ago

  • 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.
