• The Song of the Orator

    by Iyla Ollinger

    He steps to the podium as a bird flies to the tallest limb of a tree

    It is at that point that they both realize that the world is scattered in front of them

    One sees thousands of people, himself beside the solemn Abe

    The other sees the sun’s rays piercing the tree as it rises

    He begins to speak with a deep commanding tone

    She opens her beak and sings the sweetest song

    They use sound to inspire others – to show them what life can be

    Together, they share the language of new beginnings

  • 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.
