• To Me, To You

    by Lindsey Morin

    To the infected girl pulling up her skirt,
    To the children with old, sunken eyes,
    To the parted lips waiting for something that will never come,
    To the umbrella craving the rain,
    To the empty picture frame,
    To the boy that jumped,
    To the eyes shut to reality,
    To the unwanted hugs,
    To the blank walls,
    To the illegible graffiti,
    To the broken guitar strings,
    To the girl skinny dipping alone,
    To the hand with nothing to hold,
    To the shoulders with nothing to hold up,
    To the lost mermaids,
    To the inevitable end,
    To you,
    To me,
    Welcome to the machine. *

  • 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.
