    I used to go there all the time. The ONLY time I ever saw it big was the evening I proposed to my wife on a a sand dune. I used the "let me go check the surf". She shrugged and we walked to the sand. I started by saying, "babe, I have never even seen this place break before, we gotta go check it out".....

    It was like the ocean was there to guide me through the evening. I was wondering the whole way down there how I was going to convince her to take off her high heels and walk on the beach, and then mother Pacific reached out with her waves.....

    But yeah, only time I ever saw it big there, and it was BIG.

    Weird. Every place around there can be 6 foot, and the Strand might be shin-high and crumbly. My ex-wife worked at the Spa in the Hotel Del. She was a very popular girl.

    Spent a lot of summers at the Outlet. Remember that place? Hehe. I was budz with the father of the kid who got paralyzed there.

    I'll post a pic of my latest trip to the PNW later.

    A few of those random pictures in my SI gallery are of the SS Monte Carlo. The casino ship that sank there on the beach and they just covered it over with sand about 80 years ago. Every few years, swells uncover it. I had been waiting years to see it and I was also curious to see if it created any kind of wave in the shorebreak with the waves going over the exposed hull. 2010 or 11 it exposed itself again. Its about 1/4 south of the Del. The Sand Dune in question where I proposed to the wifey was the Dune right on the north end of the Hotel. Went up on the deck and got a cocktail afterwards. We never stayed a night in that place, since we live there, but we used to always walk around and go up into the different floors. Such a sick, creepy as$ place.

    Great story about the Monte Carlo, this is the first I've ever heard about it. I'll look it up later when I get some more time. Yeah, the Del is kinda like that place in The Shining. Has a definite Victorian Creepy Charm to it. I had my high school Senior Dance at the ballroom there.

    Yeah it was an Illegal Casino boat during the prohibition. It had booze, hookers and all kidns of stuff on it. It was anchored out off point Loma I think and a big NWer came through and washed it into the bay. When it hit the Coronado beach, the hull cracked. There were crates of liquor, money, chips and all this stuff floating around and on the beach. The local authorities couldn't get anyone to claim the ship. About a year later, when they were doing a bunch of dredging, they filled in that part of the beach and just covered it up.



    There is all kinds of crazy sh** out there man. A few sunken old submarines right on the back side of Point Loma by "Albertsons" too. You can just pull up a diving map and check out some of the sh**. I was surfing probably 10 years ago when an F16 went down right past the OB pier. Well, about a mile past it. The next dat, a giant light fixture was floating up against the reefs where I was. It was huge, had all these wires hanging out. I just pulled it out of the water and threw it in the dumpster. Wifey said, I dunno, that looked important. I said, WTF am I supposed to do with it. The Military is well aware that the plane is at the bottom of the ocean. The guy ejected and they saved him.
