You may have heard about the local shark attack in So Cal, San Diego county to be exact. Afterwards (according to the news) that beach area was closed to swimmers and a surfing event was canceled. Then today it was a sunny Sunday at our Orange County beaches, absolutely beautiful. The waters were filled with swimmers and surfers. “Dog Beach” in Huntington Beach was alive with the 4-legged friends and their owners. If anyone was concerned about sharks, it wasn’t evident here.
Although a few of us noticed the life guard boat heading up and down the beaches. Someone said, “Hey maybe they’re looking for sharks”, who knows maybe they were. Or maybe it was just a routine patrol with so many people at the beach today, not sure we will know for sure. What ever the situation, no doubt thousands and thousands of folks enjoyed the day at the ocean.
My day was spent biking on the great beach trail, not in the water. Huntington Beach, also officially known as Surf City is a great place for all to enjoy. Our usual visit to Huntington often includes a trip to Jack’s Bikes on Main Street. Today it was for a new rear-view mirror for my bike, the last one didn’t survive a little biking (not serious) accident a few months back.
At this point our summer weather is expected to continue for a few more days. So if you’re not afraid of sharks or if you’re like me and just love to bike at the beach, many of our So Cal beaches are just the place to be.
