Happy New Year from Shell Beach

January 1st, 2020

It was a beautiful day at the beach…

Beach

until the rogue wave got me!

After Rogue Wave

John was in the moment and missed the shot.

The wave was so powerful, I thought it was going to topple me over.
Had to empty my boots three times!



Dangerous Waves Persist Along Central Coast Beaches

The high surf persists along the Central Coast, where the advisory issued Tuesday has evolved into a warning.

Breaking waves are expected to be 15 to 20 feet tall and swimming is considered dangerous. The risk of drowning is exceptionally high due to the strong rip current.



I checked the tide app and read the tide report.

How did I not read about this before visiting the beach???

Liberty Bell Postage Stamp

Liberty Bell–National Parks Service

The State House bell became a herald of liberty in the 19th century. “Proclaim Liberty Throughout All the Land Unto All the Inhabitants thereof,” the bell’s inscription, provided a rallying cry for abolitionists wishing to end slavery.

13th Amendment to the United States Constitution, adopted in 1865, abolished slavery throughout the United States and ended involuntary servitude except as a punishment for conviction of a crime.

JOURNALISTS ALLEGEDLY ‘Tracked’ And ‘Interrogated’ By DHS While Reporting On Border Sue Trump Administration ‘To Defend Free Speech’

The lawsuit, which was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, asserts that on “multiple separate occasions,” U.S. government officials demanded that the journalists participate in a “secondary screening” at the border and requested that they disclose information about their sources.

US Constitution Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
