California at the Edge of the Sea 2018 Calendar
From the light at Pigeon Point in Santa Cruz to the sparkling coast of Los Angels, California at the Edge of the Sea explores the interaction of sea and land. The Pacific Ocean sweeps along more than 800 miles of California coastline, and we share the changing personalities of both sea and shore, from the craggy headlands of Point Lobos to the easy shores of Rancho Palos Verdes. Surf’s up!
Published by Tide-mark, the California at the Edge of the Sea 2018 wall calendar opens to 13.75 x 20.5 inches.
Areas the California coast featured in the 2018 calendar include:
Point Lobos State Natural Preserve has been called the “greatest meeting of land and water in the world.” Protected against development since 1933, the area is especially appealing to divers who enjoy the diversity of sea life found in the ocean here.
A powerful west wind sweeps across Pacific Ocean waves near the Seal Rock Picnic Area on the Monterey Peninsula in central California.
East Beach in Santa Barbara offers a good place to swim and hosts a number of volleyball tournaments each year.
Shelter Cove in Humboldt County does not look very welcoming to mariners. In 1849, a party of explorers discovered Humboldt Bay and the protected port it offered for ships.
McWay Creek makes its way to the sea where its waters fall 80 feet to the beach below at Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park in Big Sur.
The green spring landscape undulates toward Morro Bay in San Luis Obispo. Morro Rock, a 576-foot volcanic plug, rises in the background near the entrance to Morro Bay Harbor.
Though it may appear to be a wild and empty shoreline, Baker Beach extends beneath the cliffs of Golden Gate Recreation Area in San Francisco.
The community of Leucadia in Encinitas offers surfers several miles of reef and sand.
The rocky shore of El Matador beach is only a short distance from the city of Malibu. The beach is part of Robert H. Meyer Memorial State Beach that encompasses El Matador, La Piedra and El Pescador State Beaches. Each of the beaches can be reached via the Pacific Highway.
The beach at La Jolla Cove is part of the San Diego La Jolla Underwater Park Ecological Reserve. La Jolla is the smallest of the nine beaches managed by the City of San Diego. Its sandy swimming area is largely covered by Pacific Ocean at high tide.
Pacific Ocean waves mount a relentless attack on the shore off the coast of Mendocino, where even the seagulls seem to enjoy the view.
The Pacific Ocean becomes a washboard of waves as the sun sets near Ventura in California’s southernmost county.
