Around seven I head down to the beach to watch the sun go down. Retirement is so grand! Yesterday there was a group of crows ( gang of crows? ) down at the beach just enjoying being crows. There was a strong updraft there as the breeze came up from the South and up the beach. The crows were folding their wings back and doing strange dives and other decents thru the rising winds. Some were shaking the wind of their wings as they sank and just before hitting the beach they would unfold their wings and glide back up and joyfully start all over again.

At LongBeach there were a group of guys with radio control gliders playing with the updrafts and the beach was actually long but with no swimmers because of the tiny drops of oil that came drifting to the beach from the oil derricks. They could keep those gliders up for hours just running those boys up and down the beach.
