These pictures are taken along the rocky beaches of Pacific Grove, California. There are extensive sandy beaches on the other side of Fisherman's Wharf in Monterey. However, the beaches of Pacific Grove are ideal for tide pool gazing, rough and rocky.
While I was in the Air Force, I was stationed at the Defense Language Institute in the Army's Presidio of Monterey (1971-1972). It was then that I first encountered the interesting "tunnel" feature found in the next two pictures. It does not seem to have changed much in the last 30 years.
