Seabright or Castles Beach showing a very-wide dry-sand backbeach. Note the top of a nearly completely buried seastack in the left-center of the photograph. View to the east.
El Niño Seabright Beach littered with driftwood from the San Lorenzo River. At high tide the water level is close to the base of the coastal bluffs. The seastack is in the center of the photograph and a smaller one has become exhumed just to the right of it.
