• The Park Far From Town

    by Robin Olson

    Whenever I feel like thinking,
    I go to the park far from town.
    It’s a cozy little park,
    That will never be cut down.
    There’s only two people who know about it:
    Me and Mr. Brown.
    He likes to sit and talk to me,
    On our bench next to our big tree.
    And when we’re all done talking,
    “Goodbye,” we always say.
    And then he jumps off my lap,
    And he hops away.
    Ready to come back another day.

  • 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.
