Last night, the duendes that live in the roof of my papapa rearranged the driftwood. The borrochos driving the fossil fuel vehicules now have to go low on the beach instead of passing within two feet of where these little guys are trying to sleep.
These vehicles should not be on the beach; the city maintains a perfectly good road on the laguna side.
On a related topic, some people argue that there would be no dog problem if the tourists left their pets at home. They should remember that these tourists bring their wallets as well. And if the city fathers and mothers choose to cater to vacationers looking for a safe place to walk their dogs, all power to them.
Many of these dogs are from here. They were adopted and taken north, and in the winter reunite with their brothers and sisters who live here year round.
It is widely recognized that beach driving can cause serious ecological impacts by potentially destroying nesting areas for sea turtles and birds such as the western snowy plover and damaging or destroying vegetation and dunes. Shore erosion can be accelerated by careless beach driving and vehicles on the beach can be a safety hazard to beach goers.
