Gary Griggs, Our Ocean Backyard: Check out Bowling Ball Beach

Published Saturday July 9

We just returned from a road trip up the coast of northern Calif. Oreg. WA and then took the ferry across the Straits of Juan de Fuca from Port Angeles to Victoria on Vancouver Island. The weather was great and there was a lot of unique coastline and beaches, all of them considerably less populated than Main Beach in Santa Cruz on most summer days.

As waves, rain and runoff weaken and erode the bedrock and cliff materials, the big concretions are dislodged or fall or roll to the beach below where they collect in the corrugated intertidal zone between the more resistant intertidal ridges, which acting like bowling lanes.
