Thanks Robert! I admit, you're the one who inspired me to get down there and shoot some photos. It's one of my favorite spots now, though I still don't go very often.

Thanks Brook and Howard!

I was on the shore Howard. This was at the Wedge in Newport Beach where the waves break big close to shore.
