Please join our group of Crespi Drive residents and Cabrillo School parents meeting to help solve the decades-old problem of speeding traffic, blown stop signs, and child safety on this street, with an end game of slowing average vehicle speed on Crespi Drive from the top of the hill all the way down to Highway 1, and increasing the percentage of drivers coming to a full stop at stop signs on Crespi Drive, especially the Crespi Drive/Roberts Road intersection.

I took all these pictures with my iPhone 6+ camera while traveling cross-country on Amtrak's Capitol Limited, Southwest Chief, and Coast Starlight. Along the way, I saw two of the strangest names I have ever encountered in the United States: The Youghiogheny and Monongahela rivers meet at Confluence, Pennsylvania.
Amtrak long-distance trains offer sleeping compartments, coach seating, food and beverage service, showers, restrooms, helpful attendants, and incredible scenery. If you shop around by date, you can get steep discounts on rail fares and accommodations. I use a MasterCard Amtrak Guest Rewards credit card for all my daily purchases to rack up points for my next train trip. ALL ABOARD!
Christopher Snyder from Vallemar posted on 11 NextDoor neighborhood forums: "I was driving my son home from school today when I thought my eyes were deceiving. I couldn't have just seen a naked man running down the road, could I? So, while we waited at the light, I readied my camera. Sure enough, a nude dude was running down the road. If anyone knows this modern-day Tarzan in town, please help him find his loincloth before it gets too cold out."
This Quarry Cove Art Gallery exhibition is over, but we and our readers like Denise Crawford's photo of Sharp Park Pier at night (below) so much that we decided to keep the post on Riptide for our archives. It will remain in The Arts category on our right sidebar and in this space.
What do you plant when the grass is gone? You removed the grass. Or it died and you want to remove it. You want to go native -- everyone's doing it. And it's good for the birds and bees. But how? Here's a handy online tool to help you grow wildflowers and find drought-tolerant plants that birds and bees love!
Before you say, hey, wait a minute, I'm in Pacifica or Half Moon Bay, not San Francisco. Check it out. We've got similar habitats here on the Coastside. This tool will help you pick plants, find places to buy those plants, and get help if you need even more information on how to make your yard drought-resistant and pollinator-friendly. Then watch the birds and bees enjoying your new yard!
In a session that lasted past midnight on September 14, Pacifica City Council reversed itself, voting 3-2 to deny the appellant and grant applicant 7-Eleven Inc. conditional approval of its proposed new store at 700 Hickey Boulevard in Fairmont. Stay tuned for more details here on Riptide. Meanwhile, survey crews were out in Linda Mar pointing their transit theodolites in various directions, including the former Denny's (see below).
