Seal Beach, CA
August 6, 2012
Larry and I went for dinner at O'Malley's on Main in Seal Beach, which is just east of Long Beach and the northern most coastal town in Orange County. BTW: great pub food, I'm going back there on another trip.
But maybe I'll pass on the local seafood. Would you eat a fish called a Croaker? Makes no difference if it's Black or White. I see that the Barred Sea Bass was also banned. Was its name a self-fulfilling prophecy?

Two navy vessels snuggle close nearby,
An oil rig in twilight puts a sparkle in my eye,
Long Beach container cranes before an orange sky,
Summer sun set at Seal Beach (cue the violins)

Usually, going to the beach is a major reason why we vacation in Southern California. This time, I had too much to do, so, sadly, this was the only Southern California beach time I got this summer. No regrets, even without the serious beach time, this was a great trip.
