Where the Land Meets the Sea
Someone said the other day that this month should be called "June-uary" because of all the crazy winter-like weather we've been having. Corny, but I couldn't agree more. Though we're used to fog in June, or "June Gloom," as it's known, the daily rain we're been experiencing is unusual. Everyday the sky is a muted dark gray/blue with heavy looking clouds-- it's actually very pretty and matches the color of the sea. These were taken on Saturday right near the Post office in Pacifica that I sometimes use-- it started pouring rain about 10 minutes later and luckily we were able to duck into the coffee shop right across the street and sit and watch it from the window.
Right behind where I'm walking is an RV park and a there's bunch of apartments on the street just in front of me. They're both literally a few feet from the edge of the cliffs. This is the area where many of the apartments have fallen into the ocean in recent years from the coastal erosion that occurs after heavy rains. Every 10 years or so, the sea level moves up just a little bit, as if the sea and land are arguing over who gets what. So far the sea seems to be winning.
