This new seascape image was taken July 29 during a period when the high tides were exceeding five feet. This meant sea water was breaching the beach, spilling into the lagoon where the Santa Clara river meets the sea.

That these high tides nearly coincided with sunset made for some lovely visuals.

Here you can see about 40 yards of shallow sand with water encroaching and retreating with every wave, creating “fingers” pointed with sea foam.

Various species of sea birds on the scene, especially American avocets.
