• The Poetry of Seasons

    by Morgan Brown

    I gaze out of the window in the front parlor
    Encrusted water spots dare to distract me from
    the extrinsic beauty

    Lush lime tendrils of loveliness line the walkway
    Surrounded by blossoms of bliss
    Lonely leaves dance across the lawn
    Begging for a partner to prance with
    Drowsy trees hang low
    Leering at the leaves that never subside
    An inquiring monarch makes her rounds

    Mother Earth is thriving today
    Her native tongue saturates the animated air,
    Inhaling the innocence of her offspring

    Sultry summer comes into view,
    Dragging anxious autumn by the roots
    Gloomy winter deliberately drags his feet,
    Reluctant to raze such radiance

  • 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.
