This morning I drove down to the beach alone intending to walk alone to the water and surf at least 20 feet from anybody else. I was greeted by yellow crime scene tape and motorcycle cops blocking me from accessing the beach at La Jolla Shores. So I went north a little and got in there, had a nice session on the log. Still, the idea that the only thing keeping me healthy and sane, and which definitely does not cause any risk to anybody, is banned because of heavy handed bureaucrats really pisses me off. The lifeguards made an announcement that the beach up there was closed, but did not try to get anyone out of the water. Probably just easing us into our new squalid existence. After I got out I asked one of the policemen if they were really planning on continued enforcement. He said yes, but only city of San Diego beaches. 'You can surf in Encinitas', he said. Well that just makes all the sense in the world. Let's take all the surfers over a 10 mile stretch of San Diego beaches and cram them all together at Swamis. What could possibly go wrong. I also kayak fish out of LJ. Now that's banned too. Unbelievable.
