• Hope

    by Veronica Davis

    The color of the ocean
    on a stormy day
    Tastes like the sweetest chocolate
    melting on the tongue
    Smells like the first batch of flowers
    blooming in the spring
    Looks like the sun
    rising in the east
    Sounds like the joy
    of a baby’s first cry
    Feels like a warm and loving embrace.
    This is hope.

  • 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.
