Stormy day, shorebirds, and foam at the beach

Yesterday there was a weather warning for 15 foot waves at a 6.6 ft. high tide, so I headed over to Stinson Beach to check it out. Surf was pounding, but it was more like 6-8 foot wave faces. Foam all over the beach. Not a soul in sight. Just shorebirds and me on the 2-1/2 mile-long sandy beach. Above is, I believe, a Marbled Godwit.

I found a nice weatherbeaten 5′ long 2 x 12, so I hauled it along a path from the beach to the road so I could pick it up in my truck. I discovered this nice succulent garden along the path, which is unmarked.
