The Pacific Ocean crashes ashore

The Pacific Ocean was crashing ashore along the San Diego coast yesterday, so I went out to get some pictures. Although in retrospect (i.e., after reading the paper this morning) I think I went to the wrong place, I still got some good pictures.

I was at Sunset Cliffs in Ocean Beach when I should have been at the Ocean Beach pier or at Boomer or Horseshoe in La Jolla where waves were reportedly up to eighteen feet.

Surfers were out, as was one jetski that I saw, but mostly it was spectators taking pictures of family and friends with the waves crashing in the background. Rescue and tourist helicopters were also out, and at least one surfer had to be rescued.

I went to Sunset Cliffs because there’s a reason why “Cliffs” is in the name. It’s a beautiful area of San Diego that is very accessible to the masses, and I was one of the masses.
