• The Last Grain of Sand

    by Arwa Awan

    We wear our lives out
    Living among the dead bodies
    the Burnt, the Gone, the Misled
    the Dead
    Indulged in the luxuries of our own mind
    Bound to the rulings of our own flesh
    Convolutions of selfdom wrapped around the obscurities of passion
    Wild fire the rain is smothering
    Gleaming candles the wind is blowing
    The melting clocks
    The fleeing birds
    The teeming water
    The last grain of sand

  • 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.
