Cymbidium

I have two Cymbidium plants in large pots on the back garden deck. Even though the temperature can drop to the high 30º, the Cymbidium begin blooming every January.

Happy New Year from Shell Beach

Wednesday, 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???
