Tiny channels in the sand, where water was flowing back out to sea after each incoming wave.

I saw three of these shorebirds skimming along the waves. A little later, I saw this one poking around, no doubt hunting for dinner.

Thinking back to the last "normal" weekend in southern California before it became clear that covid-19 was spreading locally & closures started.

After a busy Saturday & Sunday morning, I went out for a calming photo walk at the beach.

Not many people were there. I'm not sure if it was just not warm enough yet, or people were starting to keep their distance already, or if they were just all at the other end where there was a kite festival.

covid closures & beaches 

The beach is closed now, along with the bike path and the sidewalk I was standing on. ALL of Los Angeles County's beaches are closed.

Neighboring Ventura County just re-opened some of theirs with distancing rules in place, and while Orange County has resisted closing their beaches, they had so many people show up at the coast this weekend that some cities are thinking about closing them after all. (Well, maybe only on weekends when non-locals might show up. 🙄 )
