Don't go in or near the water around Goat Rock, Steve! That's north of Bodega Bay. Those "sleeper" waves even pluck rock climbers off the cliffs. I shudder when I see people allowing their children play tag with the surf near there. I tell the parents about the waves, but can't do much else. People's dogs are also frequent victims of those waves in that area.
I was making my way through Pt. Reyes this morning and found this sign at south beach. The park was empty with the exception of one small group of whale watchers. I told them about seeing one earlier in the day. Most had binoculars, and a couple had small P&S camers. It is a wonderful park that I hope to explore once I make the final move to the north bay.
The line between genius and madness is often not seen by the one walking it.
